SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE

Based on the screenplay by Marc Norman & Tom Stoppard 

Adapted for the stage by Lee Hall 

Music by Paddy Cunneen 

Originally produced on the West End by Disney Theatrical Productions & Sonia Friedman Productions, directed by Declan Donnellan, and designed by Nick Ormerod


Penniless and indebted to two demanding producers, struggling young playwright William Shakespeare (Amelia Anderson) is tormented by writer’s block until he meets the beautiful Viola de Lesseps (Annabelle Samson), daughter of a wealthy merchant, whose fiery passion for poetry and drama leaves her secretly longing to be an actor. Both are despondent when they learn that Viola’s father has promised her to the stuffy Lord Wessex (Kai Labuda) in order to gain a title for their family. Under the veil of secrecy, Will and Viola’s passionate love affair becomes the basis of the very play he is writing – Romeo and Juliet. With opening night – and the wedding day – fast approaching, the plots race toward a parallel conclusion. Will it all work out in the end or are the two star-crossed lovers destined for tragedy?

The show runs January 20, 21, 22, 27, 28, and 29 at 7pm. Tickets are $8 for students and senior citizens, and $10 for adults, and can be purchased online or at the door.
