The classic comedy of shipwrecked siblings and the hilarity that ensues has been reimagined as a folk musical. Featuring on-stage instrumentation and ten original songs inspired by Shakespeare's text, this production breathes new life into a familiar journey through mistaken identities and gender-confused courtships.
The cast features Conly Basham*, Eliza Gilbert, Christopher Grazul, Ross Hamman, Adam Kampouris, Kate Lydic, M. Rowan Meyer*, Matt Renskers*, James Soller, Andrew Start*, Jacob Trussell*, Lauren Wainwright and Lauren Wiley*.
