The acting was ok., the venue was terrible. It's outdoor. The day we went it was about 85 degrees. They do provide tents but 60% of the seats were in direct sunlight. Sitting in direct sunlight for two hours does take it's toll. A Comedy of Errors as a western is interesting. They could definitely use better props and costumes. Everything looked like it was fished out of a dumpster.
June 15-16, 22-23, 29-30, 2013 at 5:01pm: Romeo and Juliet
Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy written early in the career of William Shakespeare about two young star-crossed lovers whose deaths ultimately unite their feuding families. It was among Shakespeare's most popular plays during his lifetime and, along with Hamlet, is one of his most frequently performed plays. Today, the title characters are regarded as archetypal young lovers.
July 6-7, 13-14, 20-21, 2013 at 5:01pm: The Comedy of Errors
The Comedy of Errors is one of William Shakespeare's earliest plays. It is his shortest and one of his most farcical comedies, with a major part of the humor coming from slapstick and mistaken identity, in addition to puns and word play.The Comedy of Errors (along with The Tempest) is one of only two of Shakespeare's plays to observe the classical unities. It has been adapted for opera, stage, screen and musical theater.
July 27-28 and August 3-4, 10-11, 2013 at 5:01pm: Macbeth
Macbeth is a play written by William Shakespeare. It is considered one of his darkest and most powerful tragedies. Set in Scotland, the play dramatizes the corroding psychological and political effects produced when its protagonist, the Scottish lord Macbeth, chooses evil as the way to fulfill his ambition for power. He commits regicide to become king and then furthers his moral descent with a reign of murderous terror to stay in power, eventually plunging the country into civil war. In the end, he loses everything that gives meaning and purpose to his life before losing his life itself.
