Time: 
All summer performances begin at 8:15pm

 

The Taming of the Shrew

Performances are Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from June 13 – July 13, 2018 (preview date: June 13).

The wealthy Baptista wants to find matches for his daughters. Suitors swarm around sweet Bianca, but temperamental older sister Katherina spurns any man who darkens her door. Enter the dashing Petruchio, whose wits and determination ignite a comedic battle of the sexes. A hilarious, delirious tangle of masquerades and misdirection plays out against a backdrop of the affluent society of the Hamptons during the American suffragette movement in 1910. And in the end, the surprising love story dares to ask what roles we play . . . and, underneath, who we really are.

Directed by Jenni Stewart.

 

 

The Comedy of Errors

Performances are Saturdays, Sundays, and Tuesdays from June 6 – July 15, 2018 (preview date: June 6 and June 7).

Two sets of estranged identical twins (with identical names) have a somewhat confusing day when all four set foot in the same city. The madcap comedy is set on the Isle of Ephesus and is populated with popular television characters from the 1970’s. Enjoy the confusion as the estranged twins wind their way through unraveling the mystery of mistaken identities. Helmed by artistic director Raphael Parry.

Othello
