A zany tale of love, mistaken identity and farce comes to Surrey as The Servant of Two Masters takes the stage.

The Italian play by Carlo Goldini, has been adapted by Oded Gross and Tracy Young for the May 7-11 production, produced by Shadows and Dreams Theatre Company in concert with the Royal Canadian Theatre Company and the Arts Council of Surrey.

With the props borrowed, the costumes unfinished, the support staff laid off and the director run off with one of the actors, the audience will find themselves in the middle of a rehearsal that unexpectedly becomes a performance.

The show, directed by Frank Nickel, features Nigel Brooke, former Newton resident Nicole DesLauriers, who plays the role of Brighella (and choreographer), and Surrey teacher Mark Vandenberg plays the part of Pantalone. Also featured are Tony DeMatteis, Joel DeStafano, Aidan Drummond, Uriah Field, Patricia Johnson-Brooke, Mark Manning, Kerri Norris, Allen Pike and Karen Pike.

The show comes to the Newton Cultural Centre (13530 72 Ave.) stage May 7-10 at 8 p.m., with a 2 p.m. matinee May 11. Tickets are $20, available by calling 1-800-838-3006 or online at servant.bpt.me
