The Winter's Tale

Directed by: Mike Haddad
Summer 2019

The Winter's Tale (condensed) is Shakespeare's classic tale of jealousy, anger, betrayal, and the need for redemption and forgiveness.

This rendition of one of Shakespeare's less commonly produced works is set in the 50s and 60s. Come watch as Leontes, king of Sicilia, is driven mad with jealousy over the thought that his wife is pregnant with his best friend's child. See the inner struggle of his trusted advisor, Camillo, who must decide whether he is loyal to his king or his own conscience. Journey with the poor babe, whose rough start would make anyone doubt that this could have a happily ever after. See how it all turns out!

Julius Caesar

Directed by: Nicholas Meunier
Summer 2018

Julius Caesar (condensed) is Shakespeare's timeless and timely take on the nature of leadership, loyalty, and the power of persuasion.

Presented in the classic Roman setting, with some nods to the present as Shakespeare likely intended, our production embraces the ambiguity of right and wrong that has always followed this play. More oratory than poetry, the play openly asks, and leaves the audience to answer: is Caesar rightly assassinated by freedom fighters or overthrown by a short-sighted mob? Does Antony justifiably seek revenge and justice for Rome after the assassination or is he motivated by his own opportunity for power?

Much Ado About Nothing

Directed by: Nicholas Meunier
Summer 2017

Shakespeare's "modern" comedy, Much Ado About Nothing (condensed), is filled with hilarious deception, cracking word play, and truly dramatic consequences. It is Shakespeare's brilliant take on what true love really looks like. Follow the arrival of Don Pedro and his followers, Benedick and Claudio, to the home of the noble Leonato for a summer vacation. While Claudio falls instantly in love and wins the hand of Leonato's daughter, Hero, Benedick restarts his ongoing war of words with Beatrice, a woman his equal in every way. Will Don Pedro and friends trick Beatrice and Benedick into falling in love? Will the nefarious Don John ruin the marriage of Claudio and Hero? And what hilarious problems will the bumbling neighborhood watch cause? See Much Ado to find out!

The Comedy of Errors

Summer 2015

Shakespeare's hijinks-filled comedy, The Comedy of Errors (condensed), was presented with a circus theme. In addition to Shakespeare's own inherent comedy, the troupe sought to work on elements of clowning throughout the production, to bring the presentation to brilliant life.

Twelfth Night, or What You Will

Directed by: Robert Runck
Summer 2014

Shakespeare's beloved comedy, Twelfth Night (condensed), centers on the real and mistaken love coursing through the play's coterie of memorable characters: the proud Orsino and Olivia, the siblings Viola and Sebastian, and the foolish and fooled Malvolio.

Midsummer Mechanicals

Directed by: Robert Runck
Summer 2012

This abridged version of A Midsummer Night's Dream centers on the hilarious activities of Peter Quince the carpenter and his band of laborers (dubbed "rude mechanicals" by Puck, the mischievious sprite), as they plan to put on a play for the wedding of the Duke and the Queen, "the most lamentable comedy and most cruel death of Pyramus and Thisbe."
