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.
CenterPoint Legacy Theatre
CenterPoint Legacy Theatre is serious about the “Legacy” bit of its name. Apart from staging musicals and comedies throughout the year, the company works to improve the community, whether providing volunteer opportunities or welcoming students to the CenterPoint Academy. Here, youth develop acting, dancing, and singing skills that they can use while starring in CenterPoint productions or inventing a musical alibi. And the Theatre also offers up the Friend to Friend program, in which theatre personnel work with students with disabilities to create engaging productions while boosting self-esteem, confidence, and performance skills.
