Following 'A Midsummer Night's Dream', 'Twelfth Night' and last summer's 'Romeo and Juliet', outdoor theatre returns to the Riverside Community Oval with Shakespeare's farcical "The Comedy of Errors'.


This summer, the Nelson Summmer Shakespeare Troupe brings you Shakespeare’s most farcical play. Slapstick and mistaken identity, shipwrecks and puns, bungling servants and Dukes. All delivered in Shakespeare’s delicious verse. A crazy tale of twins separated in a shipwreck, a father facing peril to find them again and a wonderful happy ending with unexpected reunions.

Bring a picnic or grab something from the foodstall and settle down to be delighted with music, comedy and Shakespeare’s poetry.

Nelson Summer Shakespeare has built a reputation for beautifully spoken and easily understandable Shakespeare. A joy for the whole family.

Reviews for previous shows: Romeo and Juliet: “The skill of this production lies with the actors’ ability to grasp the Shakespearean language and deliver it in a way that is accessible and easy to follow. The pace, rhythm and timing of the show is exceptional, with moments of brilliance and magic.” (Nelson Mail) Twelfth Night: “Shrewd direction choices, slick acting and strong characterisations ensure the audience can follow the complicated plot with ease”. (Theatreview) A Midsummer Night’s Dream: “The acting is superb”. (Stuff)
