More Information


In Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors, directed by faculty member Philip Cuomo, Egeon has a day to scour Syracuse for the ransom that will save his life and find the missing half of his family lost at sea 33 years ago. In his way are twin slaves, a courtesan, a gold chain, and the mistaken identity politics that make this farce definitively Shakespearean. An entire town is beguiled and horrified by the characters’ seemingly magical powers as slapstick physicality prompts us to reexamine what we think we know. _

Comedy of Errors_ features PAC’s Second Year professional actors in training as well as local professional guest artists Jeff Gilpin, Jana Lee Hamblin, Eric Hull, and PAC alum Sasha Blocker.
