Two Shakespearean plays are the backbone of a theatrical festival in August

Prime Stock Theatre’s Bard on Bower is Back.

This comedy about trickery and two romantic pairings will be set in the “fun 1950s.” It will run in repertoire with The Comedy of Errors, directed by Jake Tkaczyk, from 7 p.m. on Aug. 12 to 1 p.m. on Aug. 29. The latter play is one of the Bard’s shortest — a farce with plenty of slapstick and mistaken identities.

Other local theatre groups will also perform short “curtain raisers,” contributing to a festival atmosphere.
