Sacramento Shakespeare Festival
June 29 - July 29, 2012
The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare and King Arthur (a new play as if written by Shakespeare) by Luther Hanson will be performed at the Sacramento Shakespeare Festival.
King Arthur (Performance dates: June 29 & June 30, July 8, July 13, July 15, July 20, July 22, & July 27):
An original script written in the style of Shakespeare! With Merlin’s guidance, noble King Arthur and the glamorous Guinevere rule Camelot in happiness and prosperity. But peace in the kingdom is soon threatened by a secret affair with Lancelot, the bold claims of Arthur’s nephew Mordred, and the machinations of Arthur’s sister Morgan. The conflict grows until all is in danger of destruction and Arthur must rise to victory. With exciting swordfights, and Arthur’s fools to keep us laughing, this production will bring to life the story you have always known.
The Comedy of Errors (Performance dates: July 6, July 7, July 12, July 14, July 19, July 21, July 26, & July 29):
The Comedy of Errors tells the story of two sets of identical twins that were accidentally separated at birth. Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant, Dromio of Syracuse, arrive in Ephesus, which turns out to be the home of their twin brothers, Antipholus of Ephesus and his servant, Dromio of Ephesus. When the Syracusans encounter the friends and families of their twins, a series of wild mishaps based on mistaken identities lead to a host of hilarious situations.
Macbeth, the 15-minute version (Performance dates: July 13, July 14, July 20, July 21, July 27):
A special presentation by the Intern Company. A very short version of the story of the ambitious Macbeth and what happens when witches get involved.
