NSU Theatre Company performs Shakespeare

Caleb Dobbs
     Shakespeare wrote 37 plays and the NSU Theatre Company is preparing to perform them all.
     The production of “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)” is daunting, but cast member Randall Pike, Skiatook junior, is embracing the challenge.
      “This show is unique because we cover all Shakespeare’s plays as well as 54 of his sonnets in less than two hours,” said Pike.
      The three-person, all-male cast will assume multiple roles of varying genders, statuses and motivations throughout the production to entertain an actively involved audience. The fourth wall, or imaginary division between the audience and the actors, is almost nonexistent.
      “I run up and down the stairs into the crowd so many times per show,” said Pike. “Everyone loves the fight scenes.”
     Watch the “Complete Works” at the Shawnee Street Theater, playing Feb. 9-12.  The doors open at 7 p.m.  Purchase tickets at the door or reserve online at today.
