Welcome!

We're glad you found us!

We invite you to take a look around and see what we do.

September 2-6 at The Wright Opera House

ALL 37 PLAYS IN 97 MINUTES!

An irreverent, fast-paced romp through the Bard’s plays, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) weaves its wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories and Tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter.

“IF YOU LIKE SHAKESPEARE, YOU’LL LOVE THIS SHOW.

IF YOU HATE SHAKESPEARE YOU’LL LOVE THIS SHOW!”

Warning! This show is a high-speed roller-coaster type condensation of all of Shakespeare’s plays, and is not recommended for people with heart ailments, bladder problems, inner-ear disorders, outer-ear disorders, degrees in Elizabethan history or literature, and/or people inclined to motion sickness. We also cannot be held responsible for expectant mothers!
