Join the Mercer Island High School Drama Department as they present their spring play, The Servant of Two Masters, by Carlo Goldoni and adapted by Christopher Bayes and Steven Epp.

Performances are April 26 to 28 and May 3 to 5 at 7 p.m., and April 28 and May 5 at 2 p.m.

According to the Drama Department, the play is a timeless comedy about love, passion and mistaken identity, The Servant of Two Masters tells the story of Truffaldino, who takes on two masters in order to get a good meal. Chaos, confusion and hilarity ensue. Pulling from the Italian tradition of commedia dell’arte, this show uses improvisation and mask work to tell its colorful and fun tale.

Tickets are $10 pre-sale, $15 at the door, and $5 for seniors 65 or older. You can purchase tickets at school during both lunches, from members of the cast or online. at https://wa-mercerisland.intouchreceipting.com/signin.aspx
