‚Äč

The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey continues its extraordinarily popular annual summer tradition of family theatre "under-the-stars" with a new translation/adaptation of Carlo Goldoni's hilarious comedy The Servant of Two Masters. Performances begin on June 23th and continue through August 1th. Performances are Tuesdays through Sundays at 8:15 p.m. at the outdoor amphitheatre on the campus of the College of St. Elizabeth, 2 Convent Road (off Madison Avenue/Rt. 124) in Morris Township.

This replica of an ancient Greek theatre nestled into the hillside of the bucolic campus offers a theatrical event unique on the East Coast. Tickets are $32 for adults and $17 for ages 17 and under. For tickets or more information, call 973-408-5600 or visit www.ShakespeareNJ.org. Seating is general admission. The Outdoor Stage is generously sponsored by Bank of America. A sponsor of The Outdoor Stage since 2004, their continued support has helped make The Shakespeare Theatre's Outdoor Stage one of the most unique and anticipated summer theatrical events in the region. Patrons are invited to picnic before and during the performance on the lawn overlooking this pastoral setting. The beautiful grass-and-stone amphitheatre - inspired by the Theatre of Dionysus in Athens, and one of the only theatres of its kind in the United States - debuted as The Shakespeare Theatre's Outdoor Stage in 2002. Carlo Goldoni's zany comedic masterpiece has kept audiences in stitches for more than 250 years.

Considered by many to be one of the great European playwrights of his era, Goldoni took the popular commedia dell'arte form and elevated it to a new level, creating a bridge between the rowdy improvisational style of commedia with the growing popularity of the comedy of manners of the Restoration. The insane hijinks of Truffaldino, the servant of two masters, is brought to life in this new adaptation created especially for The Shakespeare Theatre by artistic director Bonnie J. Monte.
