Live reading: “The Comedy of Errors” with Danny Scheie
Join us as Professor Danny Scheie brings the old gang back together for one more show. Danny is retiring from teaching, but luckily not from the stage!
We’re presenting a live reading of his signature piece, Shakespeare's "The Comedy of Errors," to raise money for the newly established Danny Scheie Scholarship Fund and to honor Danny’s incredible impact on so many. The cost of your ticket will support this effort.
Featuring Danny himself as the Dromio twins, along with an impressive cast drawn from his hilarious 1988 production, this enthralling presentation will include talented student and professional actors he's worked with across his storied career.
Make a gift of $500 or more to be invited to a special VIP lounge with Danny and members of the cast after the show!
