Short Shakes

Short Shakes Much Ado 2013

The cast of Short Shakes “Much Ado About Nothing” 2013.

Short Shakes at Seattle Shakespeare Company is more than just putting on a play, it is an experience that fosters compassion, creates better listeners, promotes critical thinking, and develops courage. And it’s a whole lot of fun with new friends. Who knew a play could do all that?

You will audition, rehearse, and perform your own classic play. Seattle theatre professionals lead a seven-week process that culminates in three performances. All the while, you’ll make friends, learn about Shakespeare’s language, discover basic acting concepts and techniques, hone your comedy skills, and step into roles that may stretch you, but in a good way.

Fall Short Shakes:
Twelfth Night
Sept. 21-Nov. 11, 2014

“Twelfth Night” is one of Shakespeare’s goofiest comedies where mistaken identies and mischievious pranks give way to some unexpected romance. Short Shakes “Twelfth Night” will be performed on the same set as Seattle Shakespeare Company’s mainstage production of “Twelfth Night.”
