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.
Theater should be accessible for all. That's the belief espoused by UpStage Theatre, a non-profit, volunteer-run company that welcomes everyone from experienced attendees to newcomers who still expect Godot to show up. Each season places an emphasis on works that are as professional in their staging as they are family-friendly in their content. To that end, UpStage produces children's plays—which have included Alice in Wonderland and You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown—alongside all-ages classics such as On Golden Pond and Blithe Spirit.
