Shakespeare’s Women in Their Own Words
Adapted from the works of William Shakespeare

From women’s eyes this doctrine I derive:
They are the ground, the books, the academes
From whence doth spring the true Promethean fire.

Though the men take the title, the women oft steal the show. From Beatrice’s sharp wit to Juliet’s broken heart, the fairer sex have just as much to say as their male counterparts. Adapted from the works of William Shakespeare, this new piece laces together the voices of Shakespeare’s most memorable women.

Ticket prices: $22 General Admission, $20 Students/Seniors/Military, $12 Youth (12 and under with adult). Buy tickets here.

Tackling essential questions about the balance of ambition, personal loyalty, and love of country, Shakespeare’s timeless political masterpiece has never been more relevant.

Venue: Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Gildenhorn Recital Hall, reserved seating.

In this poetic and visceral song cycle, Shakespeare’s darkly tragic King Lear is distilled to its musical essence. Movement, words and choral songs performed in Latin, Polish and English render the iconic story of a man who loses everything that defines him. In 12 compelling episodes that each conveys a crucial scene from the play, this musical exploration of the text elevates melody to become the embodiment of character, relationships and drama. Songs of Lear, created and performed by the multi-award-winning Polish theater company Song of the Goat Theatre, took top honors in the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Join the artists for a conversation with the audience following the performance.

Tickets: General Public $25, Student/Youth $10, NextLEVEL $20. By tickets here.

By William Shakespeare

Henry IV is dead. An untested Prince Hal sits on the throne, having forsaken the taverns and raucous days of his youth. England, still reeling from years of rebellion and civil strife, has fallen into an uneasy peace. Determined to unite his troubled realm against a common enemy, the young Henry V musters his armies and sets forth across the water to conquer France for the crown. But as the English army burns its way through the French countryside, and the personal cost of battle becomes more and more dire, Henry must wrestle with the havoc he has caused and what it really means to be a king.
