Camp Shakespeare presents The Comedy of Errors

Join us as we kick off Camp Shakespeare's 12th season with The Comedy of Errors.

The Play

This summer students will explore Shakespeare’s first play, The Comedy of Errors. A comedy of mistakes set in the ancient Ephesus, a world of mountebanks, witches, and strange shapes and sounds. Separated at birth after a storm at sea, two sets of long-lost twins are loose in the same town!

“We came into the world like brother and brother, and now let’s go hand in hand, not one before another.” –V.i

The Process

Camp Shakespeare, a component of The University of Texas Shakespeare at Winedale Program, is a two-week residential camp for young people, ages 11-16, held near the small rural town of Round Top, Texas. Camp Shakespeare is dedicated to exploring a Shakespearean play through performance, discovering as we play the richness of Shakespeare’s word, the complexities of his characters, and the wonder of their worlds. Founded and directed by Professor Jim "Doc" Ayres, Founding Director of Shakespeare at Winedale, Distinguished Teaching Professor Emeritus of the University of Texas.
