February 8 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm$5 – $20
Guaranteed to provoke boisterous laughter, “Commedia dell’Arte” tumbles into the Carlo Theatre for three performances only – February 6 to 8. Get your tickets early, as our annual Commedia show consistently sells out!
The show celebrates our namesake, and is a lively comic form featuring bold physical play, masks, bawdy humor, and virtuosic improvised performance. Archetypal characters are at the heart of this timeless human comedy that knows no bounds, yet requires great precision and dexterity from the actors.
Heed our warning – marked by improvisational play, musicality, acrobatics and a bold, presentational style, Commedia dell’Arte is a centuries-old art form that is uncensored in its delivery. Performances are often bawdy and body-based in humor and involve themes that may be inappropriate for younger viewers.
Pay what you can and laugh to your heart’s content as the Dell’Arte International School of Theatre first-year ensemble navigates this audacious terrain in its first public performance of the year.
