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.
