Comedy of Errors. Cal Poly Pomona
The Shakespeare Club of Pomona Valley Meeting
Monday, December 11, 2:00 pm
SEAVER House, 305 N. College, Claremont
Topic: Comedy of Errors
Guest Lecturer: Professor Linda Bisesti
Whence cometh the comedy in Comedy of Errors? A family lost at sea and mistaken identities should engender grief and confusion, but acting professor Linda Bisesti will reveal how Shakespeare turned calamity into comedy. Linda will elaborate on her recent production at the California Shakespeare Festival, which turned Ephesus into Venice Beach and Syracuse into San Diego, not to mention some significant gender bending in the casting.
Artistic Director for SCSF, which performs at Cal Poly every September, Bisesti will speak during our annual holiday tea at the elegant Seaver House at Pomona College.
With an MFA in Acting from Boston University, Bisesti has performed numerous Shakespearean roles for Los Angeles Women’s Shakespeare Company and other regional theatres. A Professor of Acting at Cal Poly, she is also an internationally recognized voice teacher who coaches actors for TV, film, and theatre.
Light refreshments served. Join us and bring friends!
The Shakespeare Club presents speakers the second Monday of each month at the Joslyn Center. However, the annual Holiday Tea on Dec. 11 will be held in Pomona College's beautiful
Seaver House, 305 N. College Ave, Claremont.
