MADISON, NJ - Continuing the celebration of its 50th Anniversary Season, The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey will present a hilarious slapstick comedy on its Outdoor Stage – the Theatre’s enormously popular annual summer venue for family theatre-going under-the-stars. Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors begins performances on June 20 and continues through July 29.
Performances are Tuesdays through Sundays at 8:15 p.m. with additional twilight shows on Sundays at 4:30 p.m. at the amphitheatre on the campus of the College of St. Elizabeth, 2 Convent Road (off Madison Avenue/Rt. 124) in Morris Township.
The Comedy of Errors, a family-friendly, 95-minute version of the Bard’s hilarious comedy is directed by Jason King Jones who also directed The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) and The Servant of Two Masters on the Outdoor Stage.
Two sets of identical twins, mistaken identities, outrageous characters and a madcap chase sequence (to rival all chase sequences!) conspire to make this caper a thrill for children and adults of all ages.
