A hilarious and poignant comedy about a megalomaniacal ruler, King Berenger, whose incompetence has left his country in near ruin.

Julius Caesar

Bryn Boice

By William Shakespeare

Shakespeare’s epic political tragedy, dramatizing the downfall of an arrogant and narcissistic ruler bent on turning the republic into a dictatorship. Set in a futuristic parallel universe where women are in power, the race to claim the empire spirals out of control in this all-female production. 

 

 

 

 

Richard III

Robert Walsh

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Robert Walsh*

 

The Tragedy of Richard III is the story of a scoundrel’s Machiavellian overthrow of government, filled with deceit, lies, treachery and murder. Richard III is Shakespeare’s most charismatic villain, delighting in every moment of his ruthless homicidal path to absolute power. 

 

 

 

 

Much Ado About Nothing

By William Shakespeare
Director TBA

 

 

 

 

Benedick is never getting married. Not ever. And Beatrice can’t imagine loving a man she can’t tolerate! They might just be the perfect couple. While the villain Don Jon sows seeds of rumor and discord, the success of two noble marriages hinges on the hilarious efforts of local constables. The giddiness of the game of love, tempered by conspiracy, enflames this wittiest and most enchanting of Shakespeare’s romantic comedies. A captivating romp!
