…AND THE DRAMA CONTINUES OUT AT CHESAPEAKE SHAKESPEARE COMPANY IN ELLICOTT CITY…
THE PLAYS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE REDUCED TO ONE WACKY NIGHT OUT
Imagine if the guys from Monty Python took on the plays of William Shakespeare. You'll get a good idea of what The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) is about. The comedies all get mixed up into one hilarious cross-dressing goof, Titus Andronicus is performed as a cooking show, while Hamlet gets performed... backwards.
CSC Associate Director Scott Alan Small (you'll remember him from his hilarious performance as Macbeth and laugh-a-minute performance as Brutus in Julius Caesar) takes the reins on this spoof with CSC veterans Frank B. Moorman (left) , Scott Graham and John Thomas Miller in the three roles.
Watch these three fight for stage time and laughs in this play that's been setting attendance records all over the world for the past twenty years.
Midsummer Night's Dream Breaks Box Office Records
This production of A Midsummer Night's Dream is getting enormously positive response from our audiences. We've been hearing that you love the atmosphere we've created in this carnival-themed production of Shakespeare's great comedy.
This vibrant Midsummer combines the great words of William Shakespeare with the songs of Stephen Foster, juggling, magic tricks and acrobatic stage business. From Puck's banjo playing to Helena's audience sweeping chase scenes to the always hilarious rude mechanicals, this play has been a hit with audiences.
PURCHASE TICKETS We highly recommend purchasing tickets in advance for this production as we have already had sold out performances. Don't miss out on what may perhaps the best illustration of the "CSC approach" yet!
Family-Friendly Sundays are a Great Way to Introduce Kids to Shakespeare
We believe that Shakespeare of for everyone! That's one of the things that makes Shakespeare so great. We love introducing kids to Shakespeare before they get word that it's "boring" or "difficult." They find out it’s neither if given the chance.
That's why CSC, with the generosity of the Allegis Group, Wells Fargo and M&T Bank, offers free admission to kids under the age of nineteen and it's why they promote their Sunday 6:00 PM performances as "Family-Friendly." CSC hoped you'll bring the whole family to enjoy Shakespeare together and create a positive relationship between your kids and Shakespeare for the rest of their lives.
