The History of Dating (Feb 7 – 16)

Presented by the Spotlight Acting School

Performed by students ages 14-18

Who knew that ancient pickup lines were just as cheesy as today’s?! This zany romp through history is a fun, fast-paced look at the woes and wonders of dating through the ages. Professor Curio — with the help of his spirited partner, Professor Amoré — leads the audience on a chronological journey through time from early nomads and cavemen and women all the way to computer dating in the twenty-first century! With stops at ancient Greek, Roman, and Egyptian civilizations, then hitting Medieval and Colonial times, the scholarly hosts lead the audience through more modern decades like the Roaring 20s and the Nifty 50s.

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) (Feb 21-29)

Present by the Bluegrass Players

Director Jeremy Grant brings us the show that was created by three inspired, charismatic comics that honed their pass-the-hat act at Renaissance fairs. The show premiered their preposterous masterwork at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 1987. It quickly became a worldwide phenomenon, earning the title of London’s longest-running comedy after a decade at the Criterion Theatre. Featured are all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays, meant to be performed in 97 minutes. Fast-paced, witty, and physical, it’s full of laughter for Shakespeare lovers and haters alike.
