Show Synopsis:

All 37 Plays in 97 Minutes. TCWoWS, A is an irreverent, fast-paced romp through the all of the Bard’s plays. Join these madcap men in tights as they weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s comedies, histories and tragedies in one wild ride that will leave audiences breathless and helpless with laughter.

Character Breakdown:

Triple-threat male comedians: adept at mixing scripted and improvisational theater as well as understanding and communicating Shakespearean language. Age is not a factor for any of the three roles (wait, ok, must be 21-ish or older), but the ability to perform highly physical comedy is a must (see “fast-paced” above).

Performance Dates:

Thursdays through Sundays: March 28 – April 14

Rehearsal Date TDB with cast.
