Ozark Actors Theatre presents the first show of Season 27, Mistaken Identities: THE COMEDY OF ERRORS, by William Shakespeare, adapted and directed by Jason Cannon.
This will be the first full-length production for OAT of a play by Shakespeare, so Jason Cannon has put a musical wild-west twist to the farce masterpiece, a madcap adventure with two sets of identical twins causing confusion and chaos. Ozark Actors Theatre has assembled a cast from New York, Chicago, Arkansas, and St. Louis, as well as Rolla, St. James, Steelville, and Cuba for a musical version that will feature songs made popular by Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, etc. along with some new works.
THE COMEDY OF ERRORS is generously sponsored by Brewer Science and has performances June 19-29, Thursday/Friday/Saturday at 7:30pm, and Friday/Sunday at 2pm.
Tickets are only $20 for adults, $16 for active military or groups of 15+ (call box office for group sales), and $12 for college students and children 17 and under. There are also Family 4-Packs available for matinee performances. Season Subscriptions and individual tickets can be purchased on-line at www.OzarkActorsTheatre.org or by calling 573.364.9523 x1.
