Good weekend for local theater

Allentown Shakespeare in the Park will stage The Comedy of Errors five times this weekend; all performances free at Daddona Park (Union Terrace Park) Union and St. Elmo Streets,  Allentown. Local musicians will play an hour before each show. Audience members are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs, and their own refreshments. The play begins at 8 p.m. on Friday, August 14th, and at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Saturday, August 15 and Sunday, August 16, 2015. Also, if you get hungry, but forget to pack a picnic, the Täza Truck will be selling its delicious modern Egyptian cuisine at Allentown Shakespeare in the Park at the evening performance on Friday, August 14 and at both matinee and evening performances on Sunday, August 16.

It’s country life versus city lights in this innovative production of THE COMEDY OF ERRORS, which follows two sets of twins, separated at birth by a terrible storm. Two are raised in rural surroundings, while their identical counterparts grow up in a bustling metropolis. Extraordinary circumstances unknowingly unite all four in the big city, igniting a hilarious storm of mistaken identity.

The Pint-Sized Pirate is the latest theatrical offering at McCoole’s Arts and Events Place, 105 Main Street, Quakertown, opening tonight, Friday, August 14th. This family show has a five performance run, this weekend only; 7 p.m. on Friday; 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 15 and Sunday August 16, 2015. All tickets are $10 and may be purchased online or at the door.

The story of a small pirate with big dreams. The Pint-Sized Pirate goes on a quest to save the pirates who have been captured by a sea monster.
