The Warwick Actor Training School (formerly MCC) joins forces with the Albert Wisner Public Library to celebrate Shakespeare's 400th birthday!
Seven wonderful teen actors will perform a romping hour and a quarter of Shakespeare's silliest, scariest, most magical and most tragic scenes from Shakespeare's day! You will see scenes filled with lovers and fairies from A Midsummer Night's Dream, jealous and deadly Edmund from King Lear, two brave sisters who disguise themselves as boys to escape from their oppressive uncle in Twelfth Night, the tragic Juliet as she takes the poison to join her Romeo, and finally Viola disguised as a boy pleading for the love of Olivia for her master, whom Viola secretly loves -- only to find that Olivia falls for her, thinking she is a he! (Again, from Twelfth Night.) Come to laugh, be scared, and maybe fall in love a little bit.
