Rethink Gender in December

December’s Naked Shakespeare show explores gender fluidity in Shakespeare through the comedic adventures of three remarkable characters: Rosalind from As You Like It, Viola from Twelfth Night, and Julia from Two Gentlemen of Verona, with a little taste of Christopher Sly from the Taming of the Shrew Induction thrown in for good measure!

Thursday Nov. 30th & Friday Dec. 1st at 7:30pm in Mechanics Hall Ballroom

Monday Dec. 4th at 7:30pm at Bull Feeney’s



Coming up next Thursday and Friday in Mechanics Hall and Tuesday Nov. 7th at Port City Blue is Naked Shakespeare’s second show of the 2017-18 season.  This beautiful adaption is comprised of an all-female cast, and tells the stories of six well-known heroines through dance, mask, and music.  Mark your calendars as this is not to be missed!  All shows at 7pm.
