Vanguard returns with ‘The Comedy of Errors’

Posted: Wednesday, October 26, 2011 6:02 pm

Two sets of infant twins have been separated in an unfortunate shipwreck and will tell their stories on the Vanguard stage in William Shakespeare’s “The Comedy of Errors” Nov. 10-13.
The evening performances begin at 8 and the Sunday matinee begins at 3 p.m.
Two additional matinees will be offered for local school groups. All performances will be held in the Student Life Center on the UT Martin campus.
Shakespeare’s comedy tells the story of Antipholus and Dromio of Syracuse who are unexpectedly reunited with Antipholus and Dromio of Ephesus, 18 years after being separated from their respective siblings in a terrible storm. Confusion prevails as everyone, including the twins themselves, get mixed up.
A series of mishaps lead to accusations of infidelity, theft and madness, as well as wrongful beatings, arrests and demonic possessions.
Playing the two master twins (Antipholus of Syracuse and Antipholus of Ephesus) are Reuben Kendall, a senior biology major from Troy, and Jonathan Fisher, a freshman communications major from Dyer. Playing the set of servant twins (Dromio of Syracuse and Dromio of Ephesus) are Casey Williams, a freshman theatre major from Cunningham, and Coleen Hunt, a junior theatre major from Pinson.
Tickets are available in advance and at the door. Adult tickets are $10 and  tickets for UTM students and children are $5.
For more information or to reserve a ticket, contact the Department of Visual and Theatre Arts at 881-7400.
