Students stage parodies of Shakespeare plays, Jan 13-15

Print Email Share

Those who appreciate Shakespeare and modern theatre will be intrigued by the student-directed stage presentation of “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged),” a show that parodies Shakespeare’s plays into one night of hilarity.

Presented at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 13, 14 and 15 in Madden Theatre, the show is directed by Curtis Stelter ’11 and includes a cast of three. “The three actors who are running the show portray every one of Shakespeare’s 37 plays and sonnets in one evening,” says Stelter. “This high energy show has great Shakespearian moments. The actors take these moments and change them to fit their own style. For example, ‘Othello’ is done as rap, and the historical plays are performed as a football game with the Crown as the ball. Simply put, this show is nonsense and full of nonstop laughs.”  More
