Open to the public, the CLP performance is directed by guest and alum Doug Berky (Class of 1995), internationally known for his storytelling, comedia dell’arte productions, mime, physical theatre and expertly crafted masks. Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors and $10 for students.

Described as a physical theatre feast, “The Servant of Two Masters” promises to answer questions like: Is Federigo really dead? Will Clarice and Federigo, who may be dead, tie the knot? Does the Doctor really know Latin? Does Beatrice enjoy cross-dressing? Has Silvio ever really used his sword? Does Pantalone have an honorable bone in his body? Is Florindo a wanted man? Could Smeraldina be a feminist? and Will Truffaldino betray Pasquale in his search for love, a full stomach and double overtime?

The cast for “The Servant of Two Masters” includes:

Jax Pratt as Truffaldino
Lily Mayfield as Smeraldina
Adare Smith as Brighella
Morgan Goldsberry as Pantalone
Claire Shea as Clarice
Jamie Riedy as Silvio
