Shakespeare's Valentine Surprise: Shakespeare in Space

"O brave new world, That has such people in it!" -William Shakespeare

Everyone knows that Shakespeare wrote some great classic plays, but did you know that the Bard was actually the original science fiction writer? Before George Lucas, before Isaac Asimov, before H.G. Wells, there was William! Take a sonic flight through time as we zip through some of your favorite sci-fi through the lens, the portal, of the earthling who inspired it all: love, intrigue, power, and space, all in the name of Valentine's Day fun!

Hosted by comedian Kevin Bartini, and featuring Company members and friends. Two performances only!

Co-directors: Allyn Burrows and Michelle Joyner

Tickets: $25 Adult/$10 Students
