Aug. 13th - Sep. 5th
3 actors. 37 plays. 97 minutes. They said it couldn't be done. Or. . . maybe they said it shouldn't be done. Either way, we're doin' it! Three madcap 'scholars' in tights perform the entire Shakespeare canon in this hilarious irreverent romp. Warning! This show is a high-speed, roller-coaster type condensation of all of Shakespeare's plays, and is not recommended for the faint of heart (especially those with degrees in Elizabethan history and/or actual Shakespearean scholars...). It's a "Welcome Back" celebration of Theatre's return!
Ticket Prices: $34 - $42
