The Midcoast Actors’ Studio production of Carlo Goldoni’s “The Servant of Two Masters” will have final performances Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday at 4 p.m., Sept. 25 through 27, on the Troy Howard Stage, 173 Lincolnville Ave./Route 52.

“The Servant of Two Masters” is a scripted example of commedia dell'arte, a type of street theater popular during the Renaissance that used masks and slapstick comedy. While true commedia was improvised, “Servant” was an attempt at revival that still leaves room for improvisation. The play focuses on a simple-minded character named Truffaldino (Tyler Johnstone), who gets himself into trouble when he attempts to care for two masters at once … without either finding out.

True to the commedia tradition, certain characters wear masks and have distinct body languages and eccentric personalities, while the story’s lovers are maskless and melodramatic. The MAS production is directed by the troupe’s producing artistic director Jason Bannister and features set design by John Bielenberg; costumes designed and built by Nell Moore; stunt/fight choreography by Angela Bonacasa, props by Ivy Lobato; and sound by Jay Rosenberg. Cassandra Cunningham is stage manager.

Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for students and senior citizens, available by calling 370-7592. The show is supported in part by the Basil Burwell Foundation.
