Shore Shakespeare at Adkins Arboretum

Posted by on May 1, 2015 in Tourism News | 0 comments

Shore Shakespeare at Adkins Arboretum

Grab some birthday cake, a bottle of wine and a blanket and head over to The Meadow at Adkins Arboretum for William Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors!

This rollicking comedy features not just one, but TWO sets of twins and their adventures when one set arrives in Ephesus, unknown to, and unaware of, the other. Confusion reigns, and hilarity ensues, as the straight-laced Syracusans come face-to-face with the free-spirited Ephesians. The Comedy of Errors was Shakespeare’s first big hit. It became the basis for the smash Rogers & Hart Broadway musical The Boys from Syracuse. Shore Shakespeare Company’s production is directed by Greg Minahan.

Performances of The Comedy of Errors will be held al fresco in The Meadow at Adkins Arboretum in Ridgely on Friday, May 1st at 6:00 pm, Saturday, May 2nd at 6:00 pm, and Sunday, May 3rd at 3:00 pm. Tickets are $15. All proceeds benefit Shore Shakespeare and Adkins Arboretum.

Director Greg Minahan is a Broadway veteran, having performed for several years in such musicals as Cats and Peter Pan. He has written and directed plays for schools in New York City, and may be remembered by local audiences for his performance as Mercutio in Shore Shakespeare’s 2014 production of Romeo & Juliet. He has chosen to stage Shakespeare’s comedy in the round, intermingling actors and audience, and imbued it with lots of excitement, movement, and music.

Mr. Minahan and Chris Rogers as the Antipholuses, along with Howard Mesick and Robbie Spray as the Dromios, anchor an accomplished and experienced ensemble. The Comedy of Errors also features the talents of company co-founder Avra Sullivan as Adriana, Chrissie Barr as Luciana, Brian McGunigle as AEgeon and Julie Yankovich as AEmelia, along with Juanita Wieczoreck, John and Jane Terebey, Richard Smith, Keith Shaffer, Andrew Mimms and Colin Graves.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a picnic and a blanket or lawn chair. Reservations and more information are available by callling the Arboretum at 410 634 2847 or by visiting www.adkinsarboretum.org.

Weather-related updates may be had by calling Shore Shakespeare at 410 690 3165, or by visiting www.shoreshakespeare.com.

Shore Shakespeare Company is a non-profit pan-community theatre group affiliated with the Mid-Shore Community Foundation. We encourage and support participation in all community theatre. Donations to the Shore Shakespeare Fund are fully tax-deductible.
