Civic Theatre takes on Shakespeare

Fort Wayne Civic Theatre will present The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) over the course of three weekends fromMarch 17-April 2 at the Parkview Physicians Group ArtsLab. 

The show features all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays in 97 minutes told by three players, Bob Ahlersmeyer, Nol Beckley, and Hayley Johnson, and was directed by Gregory Stieber. 

The three madcap players energetically weave their way through all of Shakespeare’s comedies, histories, and tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless with laughter. 

All of the Bard’s masterpieces are outrageously condensed using mash-up titles, rap songs, the self-proclaimed record for the shortest production of Hamlet, and more. 

With room for improvisation and audience participation, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) entertains yet somehow manages to teach audiences the facts about Shakespeare while ensuring a rollicking good time.
