Central College’s last big performance of the Fall season opens at the Pella Opera House on Wednesday. “A Servant to Two Masters” is a 1753 Italian comedy, which means the students involved in the production have to get used to some news things. On the props side, the costumes are a vast departure from the normal and there are fake food items that you wouldn’t see in the modern world. There are also some unique musical elements, including the equivalent of 1700’s rimshots using horns, a xylophone, and even a turtle shell. The play will be performed at the Pella Opera House Wednesday through Saturday.
