What You'll Get

Though Shakespeare’s identity remains a mystery, his mechanical use of iambic pentameter suggests that he was a robot sent back in time to ensure the future success of the anniversary-card industry. Express your love of unwavering verse with today’s GrouponLive deal to The Comedy of Errors and Hamlet at the Shakespeare Summer Festival, presented by the Victoria Shakespeare Society at the Camosun College Lansdowne campus through August 13. Shows play in daily rotation and begin at 7:30 p.m. Children 12 and younger are admitted into the festival free of charge. Choose from the following options:

  • For $16, you get two student/senior tickets for one show (a $32 value).
  • For $22, you get two adult tickets for one show (a $44 value).
  • For $26, you get two student/senior tickets for both shows (a $52 value).
  • For $32, you get two adult tickets for both shows (a $64 value).

A canopy of stars frames Shakespeare’s virtuosic storytelling during a series of outdoor performances that brilliantly interpret two of the Bard’s most beloved plays. The festival’s ninth season alternates the hilarious absurdities of The Comedy of Errors with the existential profundities of Hamlet to present a range of themes appropriate for all ages and theatrical temperaments. Directed by Clayton Jevne, The Comedy of Errors follows two sets of identical twins as they attempt to make sense of fate’s follies after being separated in a shipwreck. With more identity mix-ups than the Witness Protection Program’s winter masquerade, the whimsical play appeals to parents and children alike and allows for an early bedtime with a 9:30 p.m. finish.

David MacPherson’s Hamlet departs from traditional performances by casting local actor Melissa Blank as the protagonist and thus allowing for a compelling re-examination of Hamlet’s relationship with her father. Not for the weak of heart, this version also amps up the script’s thrills and throws a creeping shadow of doubt over the tragedy’s bygone conclusions. Audiences can shield their eyes from the harrowing action with a blanket, cushion, chair, or cryogenic napping chamber brought from home. Festival parking for $2.50 (not included with this deal) ensures a quick getaway from the ghost who plays Hamlet’s father as he makes his postshow rounds.
