Time: 7 p.m.

The play is set in a classroom in 2020 and is directed by Jason Spelbring. Spelbring invites audience members to “experience the many sides of yourself” within the characters, including their “flaws and strengths”, as the familiar themes of love, hate, and death are presented with a genuine passion by a dedicated team of acting professionals.

As an educational tour group, the cast and crew seek to entertain as well as interact with guests after each performance. Activities include a post-show discussion, as well as a variety of workshops emphasizing an array of theater techniques and a crash course in Shakespearean text for those interested in theater at a deeper level.

The show begins at 7 p.m.
