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.
Spring 2017 Short Shakes: A Midsummer Night’s Deam
by William Shakespeare
Sept 18-Nov 2, 2016
Theatrical magic and fairy antics share billing in this valentine to the stage. It’s a fantastical tale of love gone kerflooey. Headliners and Divas trod the boards with Top Bananas and Hoofers. Four lovers cross spotlights with squabbling supernaturals and a bumbling rube creating backstage comic chaos. The fairy Puck sorts it out before the act gets the hook, leaving us with a show stopper that brings down the house.
