Live Entertainment in an Intimate Victorian Theater

Two Nights Only: August 27th and September 3rd, 2017


Written by ____
Directed by ____

How did Elizabethan actors memorize up to twenty shows at once?  How would anyone sit through long productions? When would an acting company find time to rehearse four hour shows? According to Patrick Tucker the answer to all of these is that they didn't. Come and experience Shakespeare performed at its most energetic, visceral, and exciting. By performing the shows the way they may have been intended, with little to no rehearsal, no director, and a loose idea at a code in the language to guide the actors, new meaning is breathed into many of these classics. Come be part of something great, be part of the audience!

“Bell, Book and Candle”

By John Van Druten
Directed by Amanda J. Hull and Tom Marks

Gillian Holroyd is one of the few modern people who can actually cast spells and perform feats of supernaturalism. She casts a spell over an unattached publisher, Shepherd Henderson, partly to keep him away from a rival and partly because she is attracted to him. He falls head over heels in love with her at once and wants to marry her. But witches, unfortunately, cannot fall in love, and this minute imperfection leads into a number of difficulties...

“Dancing With Hamlet”

Written by Deanna Strasse
Directed by Carol Zippel

When the matriarch of the Flack family, Rosie, decides to remarry, her three grown children are not exactly thrilled with the idea. They are mortified, however, when their father dies tragically in a car accident just a week before the big day and Rosie decides to go on with the wedding. The Flack's only daughter, Elvira, begins to see the whole thing as a tragedy... on a Shakespearean level. In the days leading up to the wedding, someone is out to sabotage the marriage, someone just wants to survive it and Elvira can't make up her mind. Hearts will break, but the show must go on.
