This season’s The Comedy of Errors is a fast paced, farcical journey to a southern Florida trailer park with two sets of twins and mistaken identity. Separated in a violent storm Antipholus and Dromio of Syracuse arrive in an Ephesus trailer park in search of their long lost twin brothers – unaware their father Aegeon has also arrived there on the same quest. However, Aegeon is busted as an illegal immigrant from the foreign land of Syracuse and he is quickly arrested and sentenced to death. Unknown to all three of them is that the lost Antipholus and Dromio have been living in Ephesus for many years. Everyone is packing heat but friendly as anything as folks greet the visiting brothers like old friends, and a woman claims to be Antipholus’s wife! Imagine bible thumpin’ shotgun toting good old boys and gals, track suits, mullets and alligator boots – a friendly send up of our Southern neighbours where Shakespeare meets Nascar culture with a dash of South Park!
As You Like It

As You Like It will take you on a fantastical journey to an enchanting place where your quirks and oddities are celebrated, and you are free to love whomever you choose! The story features Rosalind, an intelligent young noblewoman who loses everything when she is banished by her aunt and forced to leave the only home she is ever known – but when she disguises herself as a young man of modest means she finds an unexpected freedom to express herself to the man she loves. It is a rollicking romp of a play interwoven with dancing, live music and a quadruple wedding. Throw in a reigning monarch that makes Marie Antoinette seem like a teddy bear, a pint sized though formidable duo, and a fool with a definite Mad Hatter vibe, and this will definitely be a show audiences get buzzing about!
