the young company to Present Shakespeare's COMEDY OF ERRORSthe young company to Present Shakespeare's COMEDY OF ERRORS
by BWW News Desk - May 26, 2015

Comedy of Errors, one of Shakespeare's earliest works, will be brought to the stage this June by students in Stoneham Theatre's young company Spring Shakespeare program. The Spring Shakespeare program brings classic theatre to life by challenging young actors in ways most contemporary theatre does not. Through workshops, students in grades 4-12 focus on the importance of textual content and how to communicate the text to each other and the audience through emotion, physicality, and jest. The application of these skills to the Bard's plays is no simple feat, but 19 enthusiastic kids are more than up to the task of performing Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors on Stoneham Theatre's stage on Saturday, June 6, 2015. Under the direction and instruction of Lydia Barnett-Mulligan and Education Associate Tyler Rosati, the students will depict the complexities found throughout the play where each character is fundamentally right in their earnest emotional responses to their bizarre circumstances.
