A Little Shakespeare
A Little Shakespeare: The Comedy of Errors
March 6-11, 2018
Adapted and Directed by Sara Holdren
Joan and Robert Rechnitz Theater
"A Little Shakespeare is totally unique. It takes something that so many kids assume they will never understand, the language of Shakespeare, and makes it into something amazing, relatable, and definitely understandable." - A Little Shakespeare actor
Celebrating its 5th season as one of Two River’s most popular programs, A Little Shakespeare engages young artists and audiences alike with the work of the Bard. Two sets of identical twins, separated at birth + several cases of mistaken identity = hijinks ensue in Shakespeare’s great comedy! Last season, 28 students from 12 area high schools participated in this theatrical adventure. Don’t miss seeing the madcap magic our local youth create this year under the guidance of a team of professional artists.
Auditions and Interviews will be held in NOVEMBER 2017
We are looking for student actors, stage managers, designers, and run crew in grades 9-12 to be involved in Little Shakes: Comedy of Errors. Rehearsals will begin in mid-January 2018 with performances in early March 2018 in the Joan and Robert Rechnitz Theater at Two River Theater. Full Rehearsal and Production calendar is HERE.
