When a man thought dead shows up at the house of his former fiancee, all sorts of madcap mayhem breaks loose! Filled with disguises, plot twists and Marx brothers-style slapstick, Servant of Two Masters is a laugh-out-loud comedy for all ages starring the beloved characters of commedia dell’arte. With nightly pre-shows by other performing arts groups around Austin, this free outdoor performance at the Round Rock Amphitheater is pure summer fun.
In the news
"A family friendly romp filled with slapstick and silliness, sure to please the little ones as much as the adults. [The cast is] lively, animated and engaging, hilarious [with] energetic clowning and expert comic timing."
"Carlo Goldoni's Servant of Two Masters is pretty much the opposite of highbrow. It's straight-up goofball comedy, with a simple story and lots of slapstick. Fortunately, in the hands of a company of well-trained artists like Penfold Theatre Company, it can also be good theatre."
"A zippy, funny, fast confection, with all the energy of improv and the grace of comic ballet."
