Two men in Shakespeare era clothing

Blue Ridge Theatre Dept. hosts Shakespeare’s “Comedy of Errors” in one act

The show must go on…line! On April 15-18, the Blue Ridge Community College Theatre Department presents Comedy Of Errors by William Shakespeare. This interactive theatrical experience will be a one-act production of the famous Shakespeare play Comedy of Errors presented to you via Zoom. This rollicking farce features two long-separated twins, their two tricky servants (also twins), a jealous wife, and her lovelorn sister. This fast-paced comedy is filled with mistaken identities and slapstick humor and will have audiences laughing from the first confusion to the last.

The cast includes Visiting Artist in Residence and Blue Ridge graduate Jennifer O’Rear playing the twins Antipholus of Syracuse and Ephesus. Blue Ridge instructor and alumnus as well as Savannah College of Art and Design graduate Courtney Creasman shares the role of Dromio of Syracuse with Blue Ridge student Adrian Gonzalez. Western Carolina University graduate Daniel Reed and Blue Ridge student Jonah Aidoneus Walton play Dromio of Ephesus. Blue Ridge students Josephine Irvin and Bailey Foster share the role of Antipholus’ shrewish wife Adriana. The cast and crew also consists of new and returning Blue Ridge students, homeschool students and members of the community.
The technical team has worked many hours to make this virtual play possible: Production Designer, Courtney Creasman; Stage Manager, Alex Farrell; Assistant Stage Manager, Jena Wright; Props Master, Chloe Hallman; and Puppet Theatre Designer, Sarah Freeman.

All performances will be performed live via Zoom on April 15-17 at 7:30 p.m. and on April 18 at 2 p.m. For more information or to reserve your free ticket, contact the Theatre Department at Donations will be accepted during and after the performance.
