8 actors + 21 roles= 96 minutes of Bottom-slapping fun! The math is odd, but the humor adds up. Wit&Will Theatre takes the skills and training from their monthly improv shows and apply them to Shakespeare's most popular comedy. The magical tale of Nobles, Lovers, and Rude Mechanicals mixed and matched by love-addled Fairies gets a willful and witty production in Wit&Will's fifth summer Shakespeare show. This is definitely not your English teacher's Shakespeare.
Thursday through Sunday, July 18-21 Wild&Whirling Words will present Twelfth Night, performed in Elizabethan costumes and with Elizabethan music.
Directed by Steamer No. 10 Theatre resident director Mark Salocks, the
cast also features members of Wit&Will Improv Troupe in different roles from
"What You Will." Twelfth Night is the comic play that answers the
question, "if music is the food of love," how can anyone have "excess of
it, so that the appetite may sicken and so die"?
Thursday through Sunday, July 25-28 Wild&Whirling Words will present "What You Will," a modern adaptation of Twelfth Night, performed in contemporary costumes, with original contemporary music and multimedia images. Directed by Parker Cross, the cast features members of Wit&Will Improv Troupe in the comic play of how "some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon 'em."
