Shakespeare headed to Shelton

Don't worry! She's OK - just rehearsing for the Valley Shakespeare Festival's 'The Comedy of Errors' production. Pictured are Jeremy Funke and Megan McGarvey.

SHELTON - I met some of the cast members and crew of the first outdoor Shakespeare production to be performed July 18-20 at Veterans Memorial Park along the Riverwalk. Admission is free. 

They've been rehearsing in the meeting room at Plumb Memorial Library for less than two weeks, said artistic director and group founder Tom Simonetti, a city native who now lives in New York City.

The troupe was a fun group to be around. There is nothing like theater folks!

Today there is a Cast Meet and Greet at The Twisted Vine restaurant, 285 Main St., Derby. For a $10 admission price you'll get a three-course meal and a chance to see some of the scenes from the play.

Funke gives Steve Mazzoccone a hand. The actors portray identical twins in the play.

And here Funke and Jessica Breda rehearse a scene.

I'm looking forward to attending a performance next week. We may even bring along a picnic.

 Stay tuned for a story in the New Haven Register.
