NAU Theater season opens with a Shakespearean comedy

Shakespeare's The Comedy of Error Directed by Mac Grooves Clifford E. White Theater October 16-25, 2015

NAU Theater will stage William Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors this October.

Shakespeare’s earliest play tells the tale of two sets of lost twins who, after a long series of disruptive events, finally reunite and stumble upon their long-lost parents. Capitalizing on the story’s broad slap-stick laughs, clowning and running jokes, NAU Theater brings to life the delightful spirit of the developing genius who would become the world’s most significant playwright.

The Comedy of Errors will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 16 and 17 and Oct. 22-24. There will be a matinee performance at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 25.

Individual tickets for the performance are $14 for adults; $12 for seniors and NAU staff; $8 for children; and $2 for NAU students. Tickets can be purchased from the Central Ticket Office by calling (928) 523-5661 or by visiting

Free parking is available after 4:30 p.m. and on weekends in parking lot P13, behind the Cline Library.

This is the first production of NAU Theater’s season “Great stories from great storytellers.”
