Western Canada Theatre welcomes the New Year with hearty laughs to fill the cold night air: The Comedy of Errors, William Shakespeare’s craziest comedy, runs from January 26 to February 4 at Sagebrush Theatre.

Fun and hi-jinks are in the cards when two sets of long-lost twins arrive in the same city, to the hilarious confusion of all. Slapstick, magic, and spontaneous songs make this Comedy of Errors two-times the fun.

Adapted and directed by former WCT Artistic Director Daryl Cloran, The Comedy of Errors is set at the turn of last century on a Vaudevillean Island. So, the five actors, in addition to playing all the roles with lightning fast changes, also sing, dance, and perform magic (we have a Magic Consultant!). Just try to keep up.

We are happy to welcome Anand Rajaram, Jamie Robinson, and Ella Simon to their debuts with WCT. And WCT audiences will recognize some favourite faces, too: Andrew Cownden (last seen in Peter and The Starcatcher) and Tess Degenstein (most recently in Don’t Dress For Dinner). On the creative side is also a mix of debuts and favourites: Daryl Cloran’s second return this season as Director; Drew Facey as Set & Costume Designer (most recently Set Designer for In a Blue Moon); Louise Guinand, in her debut with WCT, as Lighting Designer; Jonathan Lewis, as Sound Designer (last season with I’ll Be Back Before Midnight); Nick Wallace as Magic Consultant; and WCT regulars Tracey Powers as Choreographer; Melissa Thomas as Fight Director; Heather Cant as Assistant Director, Skylar Nakazawa as Stage Manager; Christine Leroux as Assistant Stage Manager, and Madison Henry as Apprentice Stage Manager.

So, Step Up, Step Up to the best show in town: The Comedy of Errors, January 26 to February 4, at Sagebrush Theatre. Tickets at Kamloops Live! Box Office: www.kamloopslive.com or 250-374-5483
