Kindness begets kindness -- plus several hours of free elf labor -- in The Elves and The Shoemaker, a fresh musical adaptation of Grimm's fairy tale by the Tabard Theatre Company. A poor-but-kindly cobbler is in a tight fix. After giving away his last pair of shoes to a deserving soul, he has only enough leather to make a single pair more. Exhausted, he heads for bed, but not before setting out his materials for the next day's work. That very night, mysterious elfin visitors creep into his shop on a special mission to help. Tabard's multigenerational cast will enchant you with this expanded musical created by Jennifer Packard and Jeremy Harris. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Shady Shakespeare Theatre Company (SSTC) is proud to present Tom Stoppard’s hilarious absurdist classic, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead.
Acclaimed as a modern masterpiece, this existentialist play is the fabulously inventive tale of Shakespeare's Hamlet as told from the perspective of two of its minor characters. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are friends of Hamlet's from Wittenberg who are called upon by King Claudius to come and keep his step son/nephew, Hamlet, company and, essentially, spy on him. We all know how the story ends, but these two blokes are simply making their way through life with hope that everything will be all right. Can they actually control their own destiny, or will fate win the day? Is this a tragedy or a comedy? Can life be anything but both? Come watch as Rosencrantz and Guildenstern reconcile their “everything will work out” attitude with the overwhelming realization that sometimes fortune has another ending in mind. Director, Dinna Myers, invites you to step into a raucously funny world where anything can happen - or can it?
