Bard in the Quad returns for its 16th season with William Shakespeare’s hilarious tale of mistaken identity, Comedy of Errors. Performances run August 5-8 and 12-15 at 7:30 p.m. in the Memorial Union Quad on the Oregon State University Campus. Bard in the Quad 2021 is sponsored by the Corvallis Club.
When Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant Dromio arrive on the shores of Ephesus, the last thing they were expecting is to get tangled up in a wild tale of mistaken identities involving their long lost twin brothers (who, coincidentally also go by the names "Antipholus" and "Dromio.") Confused? So is everyone in Ephesus resulting in a wild comic romp that tests the bonds of marriage, love, friendship, and family. Set in a vivid and cartoonish depiction of Ancient Rome, this charming tale will delight audiences of all ages.
“We are thrilled to be back outside in the Quad and rehearsing theatre for audiences again,” comments director and OSU Theatre faculty member Elizabeth Helman. “It’s been a challenging year and although we’ve experimented a lot with audio and digital formats at OSU Theatre, nothing can replace the experience of live performance. Bard in the Quad is always such a special event and really the perfect way to invite people back onto our campus this summer.”
The Comedy of Errors cast features OSU students Libby Brennan (Amelia/Company), Sophie Brown (Dromio S.), Josh Burlock (Duke Solinus), Steven Evans-Renteria (Courtesan/Company), Abrianna Feinhaur (Dromio E.), Srimanyu Ganapathineedi (Antipholus S.), Hannah Schwartz (Luciana), Taylor Stageberg (Balthazar), and Kane Sweeney (Angelo). AJ Glessner (Aegeon), Samantha Johnson (Adrianna), Ellie Smith (Merchant/Company), Josh Smith (Antipholus E.), and Brandon Urey (Pinch/Nell/Company) also join the cast.
