Shakespeares Comedy of Errors to Play at WKCTC November 10-13

PADUCAH, KY (November 1, 2016) Audience members will have a unique perspective of William ShakespearesThe Comedy of Errorson the Clemens Center Fine Arts Center stage November 10-13.

We are excited to offer our audiences the chance to see this play up-close as they sit on stage with the performers, said Constance Wade, WKCTC theatre professor and play director. Its will be a new adventure for the actors and for the audiences.

One of Shakespeare's early plays,The Comedy of Errorsis his shortest, zaniest and fast-paced farce. Mistaken identity with two sets of twins mystifies the crazy cast of characters in this knockabout comedy, involving them in a variety of uproarious situations, including a near seduction and the nuttiest of family reunions.

Wade has adapted the original play to aretro, science fiction setting with multimedia added to the production. An eclectic cast of characters with most actors playing double roles rounds out this unique adaptation.

This production will be different and fun with a new interpretation of Shakespeares already hilarious play, and we are all looking forward to have our audiences on stage to add to the excitement of the show, said Wade.

Show performances will take place November 10-12 at 7:30 p.m. and November 13 at 3 p.m.Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children, students and WKCTC faculty and staff.
