Portland Stage Company wraps up its season with the final week of the comedy “Bach at Leipzig,” a fast-paced, funny and mostly true retelling of the time when a group of musicians bypassed by history joust for the most coveted musical post in all of Europe. The story is set in Germany in 1722. The revered organist of the Leipzig Cathedral dies suddenly, leaving an opening. The cathedral invites a group of young musicians to audition, including one Johann Sebastian Bach.

The play is directed by Samuel Buggeln. It’s a face-moving show, full of bribery, blackmail and betrayal — and swordplay.

“Bach at Leipzig” features an all-star cast of local and national actors, including several who have worked regularly at Portland Stage over the years — Ron Botting, Tom Butler, Colby Chambers, Tom Ford, Daniel Noel and Dustin Tucker.

As this is the final week of the show — and the season — Portland Stage has added performances. Remaining curtain times are 2 p.m. today; 7:30 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday; 2 and 7:30 p.m. Thursday; 7:30 p.m. Friday; 4 and 8 p.m. Saturday, and 2 p.m. May 23.

Tickets range from $16 to $36.
