The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) shatters any preconceptions about the dryness of Shakespeare by zipping through all 37 of the bard's plays in 90 minutes, playfully reducing complex plots to their constituent parts. The pared down storytelling simultaneously reveals the archetypal resonances between the works while humorously making light of the prolific playwright's commonly recycled plot elements such as mistaken identity, dramatic last-act deaths, and tyrannical kings who forced their courts to rhyme in every sentence. The three-person cast engages patrons with high-energy interaction, tearing down the fourth wall with gleeful abandon to talk to audiences and pull showgoers into their madcap scenes.

Classical Theatre Project

Countless theatre troupes perform Shakespeare plays. But very few of them present them exclusively for young audiences. At Classical Theatre Project, the ensemble strives to make William Shakespeare’s work appealing and relevant to youth culture. Whether they’re mounting a traditional Elizabethan production or infusing new life into a script with unconventional concepts and spilled baby food on the pages, the company takes pride in getting young people excited about live theatre.
