Mobile Shakespeare Madness
Shakespeare, Music & Art, All In One Event

Friends, Families, Patrons of the Arts!

An unexpected cancellation for the Momentum Theatre Troupe is a boon for us. Momentum is dedicated to bringing bold, innovative theatre to diverse audiences on their mobile theater—a one-of-a-kind converted truck that opens into a multi-level jungle gym of a stage. This Thursday and Friday only, they will be performing three plays (see program below)for your evening’s entertainment.

Along with their performances we will also have live music beginning at 6:30. 

We also present the best in art from a number of local artists, selling their works of art from the trunks of their cars!

Come one, come all and partake in an evening of fun entertainment.

Performances are suitable for all ages!

See you there and Please bring a chair!

Sincerely,
 
Mary Berg

~All performances are free, although donations are encouraged!~

THE LEADER, by Eugene Ionesco
A short absurdist political comedy in which the people anxiously await their beloved Leader—only to discover he’s not exactly what they thought.
JABBERWOCKY, inspired by Lewis Carroll
A surreal, nightmare-scape version of Carroll’s beloved nonsense verse, which takes us through the looking glass and underground, with original music by cast member Samson Kohanski
A TEMPEST, adapted from William Shakespeare
A story of power, revenge, identity, and love which will see the cast climbing all over, under, and around the theatre truck, armedwith Shakespearean verse, battling storms, monsters, and magic.
