Marin Shakespeare Company - Hey nonny nonny and wild Shakespeare!--Pacific Sun

2006
The Comedy of Errors

Directed by James Dunn

Antipholus and Dromio

Producer’s Perspective:

Our “Comedy” almost started out as a tragedy. Shortly before we were set to hold auditions for the summer, we learned that our long-time friend and colleague Jim Dunn would need to have brain surgery. Jim told us he would be fine with us selecting a different director for the production; our choice was to wait and see how Jim felt.

Jim came through his surgery with flying colors and we moved ahead somewhat tentatively with the casting and production planning. Fortunately, we were able to find an astonishingly talented group of comedians who took the script and ran with it, making Jim’s job a little easier. We were delighted to have Mary Knoll and LeAnne Rumbel, two of the funniest ladies to grace any North Bay stage, as our Ephesian sisters. The versatile Andrew Jackson returned from the previous summer to play both Antipholuses – or Antipholi? Yet we had some trouble finding the perfect Dromio, an exceptionally key role.
