“Macbeth” dramatizes the damaging physical and psychological effects of political ambition on those who seek power for its own sake. “The Comedy of Errors” is Shakespeare’s shortest play and one of his most farcical comedies brimming with slapstick, mistaken identity, puns and word play.

These performances mark the 11th year of Shakespeare & Company’s week-long residency at the college when a series of acting and theater arts workshops are offered to students. The residency traditionally includes free performances for the public during the week-long February break observed by most public school districts.
