Highly-abridged Shakespeare

BENNINGTON - Bennington Community Theater will present “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)” on Fridays and Saturdays, January 14, 15, 21, and 22 at 7:30 pm; and Sundays, January 16 and 23 at 2 pm. This comedic tour de force by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield combines classical theater, side-splitting slapstick, ingenious improv, witty wordplay, colorful tights, and a totally unrealistic timeline to create an evening of live entertainment that will leave audiences wanting more.
The cast of Mike Cutler, D. Mark Blank, and Chris Restino, along with director Todd Hjelt, have dusted off their tights and frilly shirts in an effort to bring a little more joy and culture to southern Vermont.
Excited to be back in front of an audience, the production has made a few subtle changes to enhance the theatrical experience - basically they’ve made it even faster and to maintain appropriate social distancing, they will no longer allow Chris to barf on the audience. With these changes in place the cast has assured BCT that all 37 Shakespearean plays will be presented or at least mentioned and that these overachievers will be able to create an evening of infectious fun.
Run time is approximately 90 minutes. Proof of vaccination is required and masks must be worn while in the building. For tickets and information go to bpacvt.org/tickets or call (802) 447-0564
