SPRINGFIELD, Ohio — As part of the 2004-05 Wittenberg Series, The Acting Company will present Shakespeare’s The Two Gentlemen of Verona at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 7, at Kuss Auditorium, Clark State Community College Performing Arts Center. The Wittenberg Guild is co-sponsoring the event.
There is no admission charge, but to ensure seating, patrons should call Wittenberg’s Benham-Pence Student Center Service Desk at (937) 327-7443 or the Kuss Auditorium Box Office at (937) 328-3874 to reserve tickets.
The Two Gentlemen of Verona is a story about the bonds of friendship and fidelity, and it ranks as one of the most enduring works by the legendary British playwright. Crazy clowns, baffled bandits, sassy servants and an ill-mannered dog are among the memorable characters in this comedy of disguise and deception.
This production continues The Acting Company’s commitment to producing the work of the world’s greatest playwrights and bringing a touring repertory of classical productions to smaller communities across America. The Acting Company has performed more than 100 plays for millions of people around the world, and its education programs have reached tens of thousands of students. The late John Houseman and current Producing Director Margot Harley founded the company, which has been honored with numerous awards and has even earned two Tony Award nominations, in 1972 with members of the first graduating class of The Juilliard School’s Drama Division.
