Full of mistaken identities, acrobatic pratfalls, and romantic pursuit, Cuesta College’s award-winning theatre department presents The Servant of Two Masters, running May 5-7 at the Cuesta College Cultural and Performing Arts Center.
“Italian playwright Carlo Goldoni’s delightful 18th century farce has never been livelier than in this raucous and rollicking adaptation where no two performances are exactly alike,” said Cuesta College Performing Arts Instructor bree valle*, who also serves as the production’s costume designer. “Jealous lovers, mistaken identities, and one very wily servant collide head-on in this impossible tangle of misunderstandings and mad-cap comedic mayhem! We hope the community comes out for non-stop laughter in this family-friendly production.”
In addition to valle, the production’s creative team includes guest director and Cuesta College Performing Arts Instructor Don Stewart, scenic and lighting designer and Cuesta College Performing Arts Instructor Richard Jackson, and production stage manager Jessica Wright. The cast includes Cuesta College students Timothy Barrera, Tony Costa, Beth Marshall, Quentin Montoya, Sydney Moran, David Newton, Reid Perkins, Kylee Riddle, Josh Riker, Debora Schwartz, JP Torres, and Karess Wright.
The show runs May 5 and 6 at 7:30 p.m. and May 7 at 2:00 p.m.; general admission is $15. To make reservations, call (805) 546-3198 or purchase tickets online at www.cpactickets.cuesta.edu.
