 Merced Shakespearefest brings Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors to Mariposa on September 28 and 29, 7 p.m. at the Mariposa County Park Amphitheatre (4889 County Park Rd, Mariposa.) 

Comedy of Errors starts in the stars with a healthy dose of intergalactic hilarity, opening aboard the space station Ephesus, locked in a war with the nearby rogue planet, Syracuse. When two sets of twin brothers board the station unaware that their doppelgangers are also present, it’s one nonstop case of mistaken identity and confusion for all involved — much to the amusement of the audience. 

This production features aliens, interplanetary merchants, strange technology and costuming like none ever seen before on the Shakespearean stage. It aims to bring Shakespeare to a whole new audience through the look and feel of late 1950s-Early 1970s pulp science fiction while staying true to one of the funniest comedies of all time. With a talented cast and set of designers on hand, the show is sure to delight young and old!
