ShakesBeer

The Classical Theatre Project shatters modern preconceptions about the dryness of Shakespeare by staging The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged), which playfully zips through all 37 of the Bard’s plays in less than 97 minutes. The pared-down storytelling reveals the archetypal resonances between the works while also making light of the prolific playwright’s commonly recycled plot elements such as mistaken identity, dramatic deaths, and tyrannical kings who forced their courts to speak in iambic pentameter. The three-person cast engages patrons with high-energy interaction, tearing down the fourth wall with gleeful abandon to talk to audiences and pull show-goers into their madcap scenes.

As the trio catches its breath between clipped sonnets, audience members can take their own respite from five beer vendors. Choices include craft brews such as Square Nail Pale Ale and Wellington SPA.

Classical Theatre Project

Countless theatre troupes perform Shakespeare plays. Very few have presented them to over a million audience members across North America. At Classical Theatre Project, the ensemble strives to make classic work appealing and relevant to a new generation of audiences and pop 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.
