Canyon Crest Academy Envision Theatre will present William Shakespeare’s “Love’s Labour’s Lost,” guest directed by Jason Maddy, from Nov. 8 –Nov. 17.
This is a story of the King of Navarre, who has sworn three friendly lords and a flamboyant Spaniard to an oath of three years to study with little food and forsake the company of women, with the aim “to know which else we should not know.”
All is set for the journey, until the princess of France and her entourage of landed ladies arrive on embassy to reclaim the Aquitaine for the king, her father. The game is afoot! It is a battle of wits and wills! Who will win — the honor or the heart? Mix in a crew of local villagers straight out of Commedia Del Arte to stir up the plot and you have one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies.
The community is invited to attend. The shows will take place at the Canyon Crest Black Box Theater at 5951 Village Center Loop Road, San Diego.
Show times are at 7 p.m. on Nov. 8-10 and Nov. 16-17. On Thursday, Nov. 15, the show time is 4 p.m.
Cost is $15 for adults and $8 for students.
