Commedia dell’arte productions Friday, Saturday at Carriage House

SHERIDAN — Sheridan College students and other community players will give two productions of “Commedia dell’arte” at the Carriage House Theater.

The performances are the culmination of a two-week workshop in the commedia dell’arte style. Commedia dell’arte began as humorous theatrical presentations performed by players who traveled in troupes throughout Italy in the 16th century. Music, dance, witty dialogue and ruses and deceptions contributed to the comic effects.

The performances will be Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and admission is free.

The Carriage House Theater is located at 419 Delphi Ave.
