I love, love, love, love, love William Shakespeare. I have been blessed to appear in four different productions written by the Bard, and they are some of my favorite memories. When I was a young man of 17 years, I set a goal for myself to read everything Shakespeare wrote over the summer. I didn’t quite make it. I read all the sonnets and about half of his plays, but that was as far as I got before the fall came and I had to move on to my exciting first year of college. If only The Complete Works Of William Shakespeare (abridged) had been available to me then! I first saw this play almost twenty years ago, and it made a huge impression on me. It became one of my favorite plays of all time. One of the great things about this comedy is that you don’t need to be a fan of Shakespeare to enjoy it. The madcap mayhem is accessible to everyone!
We hope you enjoy this clever and silly show as we present 37 of the Bard’s plays in just 97 minutes!
Thank you to everyone that supports WCT! All of our volunteers help us out in any number of ways by acting, ushering, serving on the board of directors, providing maintenance or office support, or working on sets, costumes, props. Our patrons come to WCT see quality live entertainment, the fruits of our volunteers’ labor. Our donors help keep us financially sound by their gifts to the Annual Operating Fund, the Endowment Fund, or by joining our Curtain Call Club and including us in their planned giving.
The generosity of the Waukesha community astounds me, and I truly appreciate all the time, talent, and money that you give to WCT.
One way, and arguably the best way, to support WCT is to spread the word about Waukesha’s best kept secret. It always amazes me when I meet someone in Waukesha who has no idea what a fantastic organization we have right here in the heart of the community. Tell people about what we do and all we offer.
Enrich. Challenge. Entertain. That says it all, so keep watching, keep participating with, and keep supporting this cultural cornerstone. We couldn’t do it without you.
