Comedy of Errors: Tells the story of two sets of identical twins that were accidentally separated at birth: Antipholus of Syracuse (who is on a journey to find his lost brother) and his servant, Dromio of Syracuse; and Antipholus of Ephesus and his servant, Dromio of Ephesus.

Emma: She is a senior at Highbury Boarding School and considers herself a matchmaker. Smart, fun, and engaged in the lives of those around her, Emma is blind to her own emotions.

The Taming Of The Shrew: The play begins with Lucentio arriving in Padua to study. As soon as he sees Bianca, the younger daughter of the rich merchant Baptista, he falls in love with her. Bianca is also being wooed by Gremio and Hortensio, but Baptista will not allow her to be married until a husband is found for his older daughter Katherina, 'the shrew', whose aggressive character has made this unlikely. Gremio and Hortensio decide to join forces to find a husband for Katherina. Lucentio changes identities with his servant Tranio, and gets a job as Bianca's tutor in order to be close to her.

As You Like It: Shakespeare examines love, power, and forgiveness while taking us on a jaunt through the idyllic Forest of Arden. In this scene, our heroine, Rosalind, has been banished from the court of her wicked uncle. She and her cousin Celia have fled to the forest and, for protection have disguised themselves as brother and sister shepherds. Before they fled, Rosalind fell in love with the handsome Orlando, also banished and also in the forest. Orlando, not realizing that his sweetheart is in the woods (much less disguised as a boy), has been posting love poems all over the forest. Hilarity ensues.
