Penfold Theatre Company presents Comedy of Errors free-of-charge July 7-30 at the Round Rock Amphitheater adjacent to Centennial Plaza and the Baca Center right here in Downtown Round Rock!

Comedy of Errors is the sixth production in the “Penfold in the Park” series, an annual offering of free, outdoor summer theatre, made possible by a partnership with the City of Round Rock Parks & Recreation Department.  Previous productions include The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged (2010), Servant of Two Masters (2011), Shipwrecked! (2013), Romeo & Juliet (2014) and Hound of the Baskervilles (2015).

“We first brought Shakespeare to the park two years ago,” remembers director, adapter and Producing Artistic Director Ryan Crowder. “Romeo & Juliet broke every single attendance record we’d had up to that point. And we’re talking whole families – from little kids all the way up – it was a hit across the board. So we’re bringing the Bard back, this time in what may be the silliest play of his entire canon. Comedy is absolutely perfect for light, fun, summer fare.”

No reservations are required.  Donations are appreciated.  Penfold Theatre Company is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.  Comedy of Errors concludes Penfold’s eighth season.
