This spring, SLHS Drama is proud to welcome guest director Garth Ball, Class of 2014, for William Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors!  Garth will be directing this play in order to complete his honors requirements for his theatre degree from Seattle University.

Over two decades ago, husband and wife Egeon and Emilia had identical twin sons in an unfamiliar land. As if by fate, that same day a poor beggar gave birth to identical twins, whom Egeon purchased to be companions to his sons. On the ship back home, however, the new family was separated by a terrible storm; each parent was left with one son and one servant. Fast-forward 23 years, and now Antipholus and Dromio of Syracuse are looking for their long-lost brothers. Unbeknownst to either pair of twins, they’ve nearly found one another in the town of Ephesus, where the other Antipholus and Dromio have made their home. Hilarity ensues and error runs amok as the Syracusans twins encounter the family and friends of the Ephesian twins, leading to mistaken identities that result in confusion, romance, theft, arrests, and general mayhem!

 

Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors is a story about characters who lose, confuse, and regain their identities in an enticing but eerie, morally suspect city. This production will be set in an era evocative of the 1920s, in a prosperous seaport city filled with ostentatious wealth, lively jazz, seedy characters, zany antics, and the mafia.

Theater is a unique form of artistic expression requiring contributions from many different disciplines in order to create a polished product. Being part of an activity requiring this type of collaboration teaches responsibility and the importance of teamwork while allowing students to enhance their skills. At Seattle Lutheran, we feel strongly that all students, regardless of experience level, should have the opportunity to be a part of the production. It’s here where students can take part in the enriching world of theater.
In addition to an elective drama class, Seattle Lutheran offers an after-school drama club that produces two full-length productions each year in November and April. Students are involved in all aspects of producing the shows including, but not limited to, acting, stage management, set construction, scenic painting, props, costume design, and construction and lighting. Actors are given parts through an audition process; all levels of experience are welcome and appreciated. Productions in the last five years have included one-act and full length plays in a variety of styles, including Broadway musicals, Shakespearian comedies, 1940’s radio plays, monologues, and titles from famous play writes such as Neil Simon and Alfred Uhry.
