Beverly’s comedy of errors on its way
February 3, 2013 by James
Beverly’s Sea Change Theatre Company is collaborating with inspired Dramma per Musica—a state-of-the-art opera company—to present Xerxes: A Comedy of Errors later this month.
In this modernized production of the archetypal story of misbehaving monarchs, the setting has been relocated to the Wall Street of today—from Ancient Persia. In this recounting, an affluent CEO hits on the girlfriend of his younger brother, forming a chaotic love triangle. Add to the mix a conniving and spoiled little sister, a foolishly doting father, a stressed-out intern, and an uninvited, unannounced out-of-town guest, and the stage is set for unbridled zaniness. Spectators will be enchanted with the fusion of Handel’s lively score and Dramma per Musica’s clever and contemporary English version.
This presentation is subsidized by a partial grant provided by the Beverly Cultural Council.
The theater is committed to supporting and inspiring the community through diverse dramatic art presentations, and employs local actors for a number of facets of production, from talent to directing and more. ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ is just one of the many celebrated plays produced here. In addition to numerous works by well-known artists, Sea Change also frequently presents works crafted by regional writers.
The performance will be held on February 15 and we may see poster printing out in force to promote it over the next couple of weeks.

Tickets are $15.00 per person ($12.00 for seniors and students) and are available for purchase directly on the theater’s website.
