PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

This a story from ancient Greece, a story of mistaken identity. Based on Shakespeares "Comedy of Errors", Boys from Syracuse tells the tale of two twin brothers and there sidekicks (also twins) who were separated at birth, never knowing the other existed. Both twins find themselves in the city of Syracuse where everyone, including wifes and lovers, get mixed up as to who is who. "If it's good enought for Shakespeare, it's good enough for us!"

I saw the show on Friday and enjoyed this production of The Boys from Syracuse immensely. Although this is not my favorite script, It was quite funny and the talent in the cast was spectacular. The plethora of talent is not usually seen in a high school, but North Springs is different. Many of these students have very bright futures ahead of them.

Andrew Durand as Antipholus of Ephesus was outstanding. What an incredible voice! He had a great portrayal of the character and he seemed sincerely love struck by Luciana, played masterfully by Natalie McGee. These two had SUCH great stage chemistry, it made me wonder if they were a real-life couple (rumors confirmed they are not however).

Jimi Kocina played Antipholus of Syracuse and was of course wonderful as the masterful "Player" of the show. He showed that he genuinly loved his wife in the song "The longest day of the year" A very versataile actor and he was incredibly funny during the Courtesan's scene.

Amber Moorer was my favorite. She had me on the edge of my seat every time she came out and she was just to funny. She had INCREDIBLE stage presence and I wanted her to be on stage a lot more than she was. She made up for the areas both Dromio's (Micheal Wolmer and Max Flick) lacked. She had an INCREDIBLE VOICE as well. I can't wait to see her on the great white way.

Jana Fruchtman as the merchant from funny was actually probably my favorite. She just didn't have as big of a role as Amber Moorer. She always brought fun to the show.

Paige Anderson was fantastic as Fatima. She was a beautiful girl and was a fantastic dancer. Obviously a seasoned actor she also brought a nerdish quality to her character that was very enjoyable to watch.

Nikki Dillon as the Courtesan was fantastic as well, although I felt there was something lacking. She did a wonderful job though. Her and Antipholus together are very very funny.

The Dromio's were good, but not great. So was Adriana (Kristen Wolf). She almost seemed to break character a couple of times. She did have a pretty good voice though. The lighting could have been better. All in all, though, I thoroughly enjoyed the show. Congrats cast!

PS - Did I mention how fabulous the ensemble was as well? [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
Mistake by BettyBoop
I just wanted to correct you in a detail I realized you mix-matched, you mixed up which Antipholus was who. Jimi Kocina was Antipholus of Ephesus, and Andrew Durand was Antipholus of Syracuse. Just wanted to help ya out there.
