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.

At Roosevelt every Spring, we hold our One Act Festival, in which we showcase many different One Acts. Each One Act is about 10 to 15 minutes, and they are all student directed (and in some cases, even student written). They are a fun opportunity for students to experiment with the different aspects of putting on a play, and get a closer look at how many things actually go into making a play.

A popular actor has spend his life shirking responsibility. When he discovers he is terminally ill with leukemia, he attempts to reconnect with his long-estranged son. Scottie Templeton’s a charming, irresponsible fellow. A sometime Broadway press agent and former scriptwriter, he’s everyone’s friend, nobody’s hero and a great womanizer who’s managed to live over fifty years without taking anything seriously including love, marriage, and fatherhood. Life has been one continuous gag. But a fifty-one, he finds the script’s been rewritten as a tragedy; he is fatally ill. His son Jud, alienated by years of neglect, comes to visit. Scottie’s one concern is to make friends with his son, for everyone else adores Scottie including his ex-wife, his friend and boss, and his doctor. Tribute is a warm, funny, touching play with wonderful characters.
