PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

Art and theater collide in a merry mix at the Worcester Art Museum on Saturday.

Thespians in the Hanover Theatre Conservatory Youth Acting Company bring “Exhibit This! The Museum Comedies” by Luigi Jannuzzi to life at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. in the WAM’s Renaissance Court.

The museum comes to life in the fast-paced series of six comedic plays and six monologues based on over 50 real-life exhibits.

Paintings, sculptures and antiquities emerge from their molds and frames. Mix in some artists, guards, critics, lovers, curators and one special night to make this new comedy. The artwork even speaks to the audience at times.

Performances are free with museum admission, which is $18, adults; $14, seniors and students and free to WAM members and kids under 17. Please use the Salisbury Street entrance.
