Emerald Theatre

Summertime Shakespeare 2024

This summer, Emerald Theatre will be performing William Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors in 4 venues.


The Comedy of Errors is about a shipwreck, lost children and the reuniting of family.  When a family with 2 twin baby boys and their twin baby boy servants encounters a storm aboard a ship bound for Syracuse, the family is split apart.  The father, one twin and his twin servant are rescued but don't know what has become of the rest of the family.  Years later, the surviving twin and his servant go in search of long lost brothers.  When they arrive in Ephesus, confusion, mistaken identities and chaos ensue since the other two twins reside there. 

Join us for this comedy - fun for the whole family.
