Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. — The Apex Theatre Studio Inc., in partnership with the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall, is delighted to present the fast paced and hilarious production of “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged” live on stage at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Friday, July 21 at 8 p.m. and on Saturday, July 22 at 2:00 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Three madcap performers in Elizabethan dress (and sneakers) weave their way through all 37 of Shakespeare’s tragedies, comedies and histories at a breakneck pace. It’s an irreverent rollercoaster ride through all of the Bard’s plays. The show originally premiered in London and went on to become its longest running comedy. The Today Show declared, “If you like Shakespeare, you’ll love this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you’ll love this show.”
This production features three members of Apex Theatre Studio’s teaching faculty: Jason Nettle, Emily Auwaerter and Robert Reid.
“At the center of our studio is a group of dynamic teaching artists,” said Ian Mairs, managing director of Apex Theatre Studio.
“We feel it’s important for our students to have the opportunity to watch their mentors in action. This show is a riot and all three of these performers bring their considerable comedy chops into the rehearsal hall.”
Apex Theatre Studio is a non-profit performing arts training center celebrating its fourth year in operation.
