This show was a sheer delight to watch with it's twist in setting and actors who kept us laughing. We enjoyed all 2 hours of it! We were able to move to seats in a higher elevation where we could actualy enjoy the whole stage!

Illyria: A Twelfth Night Musical 

Music & Lyrics by John R. Briggs and Eric Frampton 

Directed by John R. Briggs

Shakespeare’s most musical play gets the royal treatment in this eclectic adaptation from the creator of 2010’s smash hit Shrew: the Musical. Two different women grieve the loss of a brother; one swears off men, while the other puts on a pair of trousers and joins them, setting off a comedy of errors that makes for a raucous, rocking good time.

Much Ado About Nothing 

By William Shakespeare 

Directed by Richard Garner

All is fair in love and war, and sometimes the two come hand in hand. When the kindly governor of Messina opens his home — and that of his daughter and his niece — to a group of soldiers returning from the front, passions ignite. Romances are born, even between the stubborn rivals Beatrice and Benedick, who have both disavowed love, while secretly harboring feelings for one another. The road to love proves a hilly one, filled with ups and downs, but not without a few laughs along the way.

The Importance of Being Earnest 

By Oscar Wilde 

Directed by Sabin Epstein

The turn of the century brought us some of most treasured and clever tales in literature, and those of the great Oscar Wilde are no exception. His comedic masterpiece follows the exploits of two young men — Jack and Algernon — each masquerading as a libertine named Earnest in order to pursue their lady love. But when they are caught in the act, a true farce unfolds, and a very real Earnest is revealed.
