MANHATTAN -- The Aquila Theatre will present Shakespeare's "Comedy of Errors" at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 20, in Kansas State University's McCain Auditorium as part of the McCain Performance Series.

"Comedy of Errors," one of Shakespeare's most vibrant comedies, is the story of two pairs of identical twins in the same household who become separated by a tragic shipwreck. The plot includes mistaken identity, assumed personas, hilarious machinations and whimsical family ties.

The public is invited to attend the McCain Conversations sessions at 6:30 p.m. in 204 McCain before the show. The free lecture is designed to inform, educate and engage audience members to enhance their enjoyment of the performance.

Tickets are on sale now. Prices start at $12.50 for K-State students and children 18 and under. General public tickets start at $25. Discounts for K-State faculty, seniors and military also are available. Tickets can be purchased at the McCain Auditorium box office, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, or by calling 785-532-6428.
