Twins in CoE

Preparations have begun for the upcoming 4th Annual Shakespeare on the Lawn production of

The Comedy of Errors. Talent abounds in this cast of professionals, community members and students. Shakespeare’s hysterical “farce with a heart” twins separated at birth, mistaken identity, lost love and zany fun are just a few of the things you will experience in Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors. It is an event not to miss! Bring the whole family, a picnic and relax! The production runs June 13-17 on the lawn at historic Ashford Manor. Tickets online, email or calling 706-340-9181.
