Milligan’s “Comedy of Errors” opens Thursday
MILLIGAN COLLEGE, TN (April 21, 2008) — The Milligan College theater department will take the stage Thursday night, April 24, for their first performance in the college’s new Elizabeth Leitner Gregory Center for the Liberal Arts, William Shakespeare’s “Comedy of Errors.” The production will run April 24-26 with performances at 7:30 p.m. each night.
Directed by Richard Major, professor of theater and chairman for the Area of Performing, Visual and Communicative Arts, “Comedy of Errors” combines slapstick humor and mistaken identity for a tale of two sets of identical twins who find each other after being separated for 25 years. Before the other characters in the story discover who each of the twins really are, a series of mistaken identities leads to wrongful beatings, the arrest of one of the men, theft and chaos.
“It certainly has been great fun just rehearsing in the new theatre,” said Major. “It is a very audience friendly space with soft, sumptuous seating. It is a perfect place to see any genre of theatre, whether classical or contemporary or comedy, drama or musical.”
Tickets for “Comedy of Errors” are $5 per person and can be purchased in advance at the Milligan College Bookstore or at the door each night of the performance. Seating is limited.
