About the Show

Comedy of Errors
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Ryan Crowder
At the Round Rock Amphitheatre

Double the fun! Take one pair of estranged twin brothers (both named Antipholus); add one pair of estranged twin servants (both named Dromio); throw them in a city known for sorcery; and what do you get? Shakespeare’s breeziest and most farcical comedy, overflowing with slapstick, romance, word play and, of course, mistaken identities! In this original adaptation for five actors, the Dromios and Antipholi are on the verge of finding each other after decades of separation… if they can only keep from bumbling into trouble that could land them in prison  – or worse!

Comedy of Errors is the sixth production in the “Penfold in the Park” series, an annual offering of free, outdoor summer theatre, made possible by a partnership with the Round Rock Parks & Recreation Dept. Performances take place in the amphitheater of the Centennial Plaza.

Running time: About 1:40, including one intermission.
For middle school ages and up.
