We're Turning SHAKESPEARE On His Head!
38 of Shakespeare's Plays in 1 show!
Shake off those winter doldrums with the hilarious play "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)." If you like Shakespeare, you'll love this show. If you hate the Bard - you'll love this show! It runs Friday, Feb. 15-Sunday, Feb. 24, at the beautiful, state-of-the-art Village Theater at Cherry Hill in Canton. 8pm Fri-Sat and matinees 2pm Sat. & Sun.
Director Shannon McNutt has this to say:"We intend to take you on a merry romp through all of Shakespeare’s tragedies, comedies and history plays.
This show may not elevate Shakespeare to the point where every hotel room has a copy of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare but it is a dizzy, affectionate mocking of the world's best-known playwright, peppered to great effect with pop-culture references and local jokes."
Also from McNutt, an English and Drama teacher for Plymouth-Canton Community Schools:
"In the past week I've had two acquaintances tell me that Shakespeare just isn't their thing. 'It's so boring,' one whispered shamefacedly.
'Oh, the language!' another boldly exclaimed. 'Who can understand it?' I wanted to direct this show because it is such an irreverent romp through the Bard's plays and it is sooooooo funny. I love the improvisational aspect to it - the show is never the same twice. I also love ensemble shows, where everyone has the chance to shine. It is a very collaborative experience."
Cast includes: from Plymouth-Canton: Bethany Basanese, Tim Chanko, Tommy Fafalios, Julie Franklin, Hannah Sayre Fox, Kyle Kimlick. From Garden City: Dave Durham and from South Lyon: Leanne Young. Directed by Shannon McNutt and Produced by Judy Cannizzaro.
