The Complete Works of William Shakspeare (abridged) [revised]
by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield
Auditions: February 25-26 @ 7pm
Performance Dates: April 6-22
Can three guys really cover thirty-seven Shakespeare plays in less than two hours? This fast-firing comedy does just that as it parodies all of the Shakespeare plays (plus the sonnets!) with only three performers in two acts. This play is full of energy as the characters run across the stage and keep you guessing how they will pull off the next play. Featured are all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays, meant to be performed in 97 minutes, by three actors. Fast paced, witty, and physical, it’s full of laughter for Shakespeare lovers and haters alike.
Auditions will consist of improv exercises and cold readings from the script. Knowledge of Shakespeare’s works is not required.
For more information, email the director, Steve Sarp.
