2010: Shakespeare with a bite!

Comedy of Errors

The Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre makes Shakespeare’s first play into the ultimate Toga Party for a wildly entertaining and irreverent stomp through Ancient Greece. Identical twin brothers — and their identical twin servants — are lost in a mixed-up world of mistaken identities in Shakespeare’s zaniest play. Great for all ages and a wonderful way to introduce your kids to Shakespeare’s silly side.

The Producers

Shakespeare’s bloody tragedy of murder, magic, and madness joins the festival for an evening of theatre to give you chills in the summertime. Don’t miss Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, spurred on by supernatural powers and their own dark lust for power, as they scrap their way to the Crown of Scotland.
