CP Theatre Presents Shakespeare In Love

September 27 – October 6   Halton Theater

Shakespeare in Love is a play by Lee Hall adapted from the Tom Stoppard film of the same title that won the Oscar in 1998. Young Will Shakespeare has writer’s block… the deadline for his new play is fast approaching but he’s in desperate need of inspiration. That is, until he finds his muse – Viola. This beautiful young woman is Will’s greatest admirer and will stop at nothing (including breaking the law) to appear in his next play.
Against a bustling background of mistaken identity, ruthless scheming and backstage theatrics, Will’s love for Viola quickly blossoms and inspires him to write his greatest masterpiece.5 STARS! “Funny, often genuinely moving, and generates a glow you could warm your hands by….” – Daily Telegraph,

The CP Drama Department will hold auditions for a new class: Student One Acts on September 30 and Oct 1 at 1:00pm in Overcash 300. No preparation is necessary.

Students involved in the project will work on plays of their choice in afternoon rehearsals on Central Campus and then present the plays in various locations throughout the Second Short Session. Performances will primarily occur in the new Levin Black Box when it opens later in the semester. Rehearsals and tech work will be done on Central Campus.

Students will be directing the plays. Performing in the plays. Working on the sets and costumes. This is totally a student run operation.
