Watch for us in June, 2015
"The Comedy of Errors,"
June, 2014 in Twin Cities area parks
Wait, what????
"And I was ta'en for him, and he for me,
And thereupon these errors are arose."
Set up your blanket or lawn chair, bring a picnic and enjoy "a little bit of" Shakespeare.
We'll choose a nice spot in the park to perform, with the best accommodations for the audience.

Note: Performances will not be cancelled unless outdoor conditions are dangerous.

Audience feedback:
"Back from Shakespeare's "A Comedy of Errors," well-advertised as a merry mix-up of mistaken identities. Performed live in the Lake Harriet Rose Garden by the Cromulent Shakespeare Company, this was one of the most delightful afternoons of live theater in my recent experience. The troupe is talented, energetic, creative, and most of all, fun. There will be fifteen more free performances in various Twin Cities parks through the end of June -- highly, highly recommended. Very, very funny." -- David Gustafson
