37 plays in 97 minutes! This much-produced, fast-paced, gag-a-second delight deconstructs all 37 of the Bard’s plays-plus the sonnets. Civic Theatre will perform this play in the Studio Theater, a first for Civic. The Studio Theater is a 200-seat, black box theater, just across the lobby from the Tarkington.

Presented in the Studio Theatre:
Thursday, Friday, & Saturday @ 7pm
Sunday @ 2pm
Final Saturday @ 5pm
Student Matinees: Tuesdays & Wednesdays @ 10am

Directed by John Michael Goodson
Stage Managed by Jessica Hopkins

The Reviews are in!


THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (ABRIDGED) contains some mature, PG-rated material. Shakespearean text contains humor, political intrigue, violence and sexual references. It is bawdy and sophomoric at times, but not profane.
