The Springs Theatre Company is racing headlong into their second show of this season’s Summer Starlight Series “The Compleat Works of Wllm Shkspr (abridged).”
This raucus comedy presents all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays in a little over an hour with three very talented actors portraying all of the characters. Family friendly and tons of fun this silly, silly show written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Borgensen of The Reduced Shakespeare Company (as well as the bard himself), will amuse and delight even those unfamiliar with Shakespeare’s works. “The Compleat Works”, directed by Michael DeWinter, plays Fridays and Saturdays, July 17, 18, 24 and 25.
Starring in this madcap romp are three remarkably talented individuals. Many locals will recognize Candy Flaming from her numerous appearances on stage where she never ceases to impress with her talent and great comedic timing, Jason Earley returns to the stage after many years with his quick wit and lightning fast reflexes, and joining us from Durango is STC newcomer Freddy McDaniel who performs with great energy and rapier like humor.
“The Compleat Works ...” is presented in the 4,800 square-foot Pavilion Tent at Harman Park where audiences will feast on Elizabethan fare of broasted barbecue chicken (a vegetarian option is available by request), fresh corn on the cob, herbed roasted potatoes, warm rolls and butter and hot apple English pasties. Lemonade, coffee and water are complimentary and a well-stocked soda bar, complete with Zuber Fizz sodas, is available for those in need of a little carbonation.
Doors will open for each performance at 6:30 p.m. with preshow entertainment until 7, when the buffet is served. Also prior to the show, the remarkable Gomez Store, a fully stocked turn of the century mercantile will be open for tours. Admission for dinner and the show is $28 for adults, $20 for children 12 and under and includes the supper and the show. Advance tickets for both remaining shows of the Summer Starlight Series are on sale now at The Plaid Pony (731-5262) or online at www.SpringsTheatreCompany.org.
