This irreverent, fast-paced romp through all of Shakespeare’s plays was London’s longest running stage comedy and a hit at theatres all over the world! Join Amy, Eric, and Richie, BTE’s goofiest actors, as they weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories and Tragedies (and yes, even the Sonnets) in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter.

As this season’s Project Discovery offering, Complete Works will give students an overview of history’s most prolific playwright.  Titus Andronicus is re-imagined as a macabre cooking show, and Othello as a Hamilton-esque rap number, all while telling the stories of the source material in a fun, inventive way. Whether students are well-versed in the Bard’s work, or this is their very first exposure, Complete Works will be sure to satisfy.

Brainy Mary Bennet, while on a Christmas visit to her sister’s English country estate, bumps into the equally brainy (and handsome!) Arthur de Bourgh. You’ll be rooting for them to get their heads out of their books and under the mistletoe in this rollicking holiday confection. This unofficial sequel to Pride & Prejudice has been a hit at theatres from coast to coast!
