The year 2014 marks the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare's birth and the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' arrival in the USA.  Come join the fun as we celebrate this happy coincidence by presenting Shakespeare's madcap comedy of twins, mistaken identities, slapstick humor, and clever word play with a style inspired by the Fab Four's first film, A Hard Day's Night.
