BHS Theatre Company: Winter Production Informational Meeting


Show: Comedy of Errors
Date: 12/12/16
Time: 3 - 4 PM
Place: BHS Theater

Note From the Director:

Hello everyone!  My name is Tim Hackney, I will be directing The
Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare.  I directed The Drowsy
Chaperone for Bedford and I am a professional actor living in the
area. If you are interested in auditioning for the play, come to a
short informational meeting on Monday at 3 in the theatre.


If you have never done Shakespeare before GREAT!  As part of the
audition process, I will be giving a workshop on how to speak
Shakespeare.  The Comedy of Errors is one of Shakespeare’s earliest
and most farcical plays.  This is going to be a great opportunity to
learn about acting and to have a LOT of fun.  Don’t let the fact that
this is a Shakespeare play intimidate you, this is a comedy like any
other comedy just written by the best Playwright of all time.


The Comedy of Errors tells the story of two sets of identical twins
that were accidentally separated at birth (Shakespeare was father to
one pair of twins). Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant, Dromio of
Syracuse, arrive in Ephesus, which turns out to be the home of their
twin brothers, Antipholus of Ephesus and his servant, Dromio of
Ephesus. When the Syracusans encounter the friends and families of
their twins, a series of wild mishaps based on mistaken identities
lead to wrongful beatings, a near-seduction, the arrest of Antipholus
of Ephesus, and false accusations of infidelity, theft, madness, and
demonic possession.


If you are at ALL interested come on by the meeting, and I will be
happy to answer any questions you have.  I can’t wait to see you
there.


Best,

Tim
