Shakespeare Festival Education Tour

February 22-May 13

sfstl_shrew_in_a_few_picShrew in a Few offers a rowdy, robust and rollicking road to true love.  Of course conceited Petruchio and fiery Kate get married, but that only begins their tumultuous journey toward eventual romance and mutual esteem.  One of Shakespeare’s earliest and most beloved comedies, Shrew offers us much to consider about marriage, the equality of men and women and the complexity of family relationships.  This artful “in a few” 50-minute adaptation is 98% Shakespeare’s text, delightfully bridged with poetic transitions to clarify the plot, themes and characters.

sfstl_cruel_to_be_kind_pic“Cruel to be Kind?’ brimming with wit and mirth, imagines Shakespeare composing his great comedy “As You Like It.” From the viewpoint of two apprentices, a famous clown, a young maid with designs for public acting, the irrepressible boarding house owner “Mrs. Bundle” and Shakespeare himself, a play is born.  This smart fantasy about the origins of “As You Like It”—a play that opens with a scene of bullying—illuminates a pressing contemporary issue in a way that young people, family audiences, and anyone with an interest in Shakespeare will enjoy.

baltimore_waltz_graphicAnn learns that ATD is fatal, she decides to travel to Europe with her brother Carl, who speaks several languages fluently, and who also carries a toy bunny everywhere he goes. The disease is a parody of AIDS, but Vogel is not making light of the disease. On the contrary, by creating an comical, imaginary illness (which the sister contracts instead of the brother) Ann/Paula is able to temporarily escape from reality.

The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis

March 9-27

In_The_Next_Room_graphicAt the dawn of the age of electricity, Dr. Givings has found a remarkable new invention for what at the time was called “hysteria.” As his young wife listens in the next room, the doctor treats his patients to a brand new experience, stimulating thoughts and feelings long dormant in stifled Victorian society and his own marriage. Fascinatingly funny and elegantly evocative, Sarah Ruhl immerses us in an exploration of traditional values and secret desires. 2010 Tony Award nominee for Best Play.
