“The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare” All-Star Live Fundraiser Reading directed by and Starring Local, Award-Winning Actor Danny Scheie!
Presented by the UC Santa Cruz Arts Division & Theater Arts Department on Friday, April 23rd at 5:30pm via Zoom!
UC Santa Cruz Theater Arts Professor Danny Scheie is bringing the old gang back together for one more show. Professor Scheie is retiring from teaching, but luckily not from the stage!
The Arts Division at UC Santa Cruz is thrilled to present a live streaming reading of Sheie’s signature piece, “Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors,” to raise money for the newly established Danny Scheie Scholarship Fund and honor Danny’s incredible impact on so many.
Featuring Scheie as the Dromio Twins, along with an impressive cast drawn from his hilarious 1988 production with Shakespeare Santa Cruz, this enthralling presentation will also include talented student and professional actors he’s worked with across his storied career.
All proceeds will benefit the Danny Scheie Scholarship Fund which will provide an annual grant to selected UCSC theater students to help launch their performing arts careers. Those making a gift of $500.00 or more will be invited to a special VIP lounge with Scheie and members of the cast after the show.
Ticket prices start at $10.00.
