Next performance: "Il Paccetto"
BBM & Bergental Yule, December 4, 2010
This will be part of an event held by the western MA and western CT chapters of the Society for Creative Anachronism (see the official event description for more details for more info), and not a performance for the general public.
CRMII Benefit, December 5, 2010, We will be performing "Il Paccetto" for the public at The Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation in Waltham MA.
The show is free with admission to the museum ($5). As is our custom, we will pass the hat after the show, if you really liked it feel free to support the troupe and the museum even more (we're splitting the 'hat' with the museum).
Contact us if you'd like us to perform at your college!

"If you love commedia dell 'arte, then come. If you want to see where
Shakespeare, Moliere and Goldoni drew some of their inspiration, then
come. If you want to have a living, breathing theatre history lesson,
then come. If you love theatre as theatre, then come."
- Carl A. Rossi, TheaterMirror.com
"When "The Greatest Commedia Troupe in the Entire World" gets going...
something is reborn."
- Will Stackman, TheaterMirror.com
"'i Sebastiani' had something to do with 16th-century Italian mask
comedy. We're not sure what that is, but we're sure it was funny."
