The Servant of Two Masters at Saddleback College

 Posted By CotoBlogzz

Mission Viejo, CA – Saddleback College is presenting The Servant of Two Masters on March 2nd through the 11th in the Studio Theatre.  In classic commedia dell’arte style - commedia dell'arte is a form of theatre characterized by masked types which began in Italy in the 16th century and was responsible for the advent of the actress and improvised performances based on sketches or scenarios. - comedy ensues when servant Truffaldino must fib his way through a day of three weddings, two duels, a dance, a chase, and a food fight, all while serving two masters, neither of whom knows what’s going on.
