A bite-sized version of some of Shakespeare’s most famous scenes will be woven together with music into an explosive, hilarious production staged by Kingsley Players from Wednesday, October 21- Saturday, October 24.
Specially adapted for the company, Bite-size Shakespeare – A Cabaret features the Bard’s best-loved characters from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Twelfth Night, Macbeth and Romeo and Juliet.
The production will be staged at Kingsley Community Centre and features a cast of more than 20 talented actors and musicians.
Ed Green, an experienced director and actor with the Tin Shed Theatre Company and Physical Folk, is joining Kingsley Players for the first time and has been responsible for creating this modern, fast-paced comedic version of many of the Bard’s ‘best bits’.
Ed explained: “Kingsley Players wanted to do Shakespeare and to ensure that their first venture is a success, I chose scenes that matched the talents and personalities of the actors who came along to workshops.
“Many scenes are from the comedies. They will be staged in a way that both Shakespeare fans and newcomers to the Bard can enjoy.”
Tickets cost £7/£8, with £5 concessions available on Wednesday and Thursday. They may be booked in advance through the website www.kingsleyplayers.co.uk or by ringing the box office on 07925 516760.
