The Missouri S&T Campus Performing Arts Series continues with a performance of Shakespeare’s “The Comedy of Errors” by the Aquila Theatre Company at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 21. The performance will be held in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall on the Missouri S&T campus, 10th and Main streets in Rolla.
“The Comedy of Errors” has been a hit for Aquila Theatre since its first incarnation in New York in 2000. Since then, the production has delighted audiences throughout the United States and Europe.
The plot tells the story of two pairs of identical twins in the same household, separated by a devastating shipwreck. Mistaken identity, assumed personas, hilarious schemes and whimsical family ties are expertly woven together, allowing the audience to stay one step ahead of the characters and laugh at the outrageous results. “No one who sees the rousing production by the excellent Aquila Theatre will forget a whit of it,” says a reviewer from The New York Times.
Tickets are $30 for adults and $25 for students. For more information about the 2008-2009 Missouri S&T Campus Performing Arts Series, call the Leach Theatre Box Office at 573-341-4219.

Weiner Endowment for the Performing Arts, and the James and Vera Olson Fund.
