Take a trip in time back to when Shakespeare lived and the Globe Theater was the place to be! Drama is at its peak and better than ever!
Plays performing tonight:
Hamlet is a tragedy by William Shakspeare, believed to have been written between 1599 and 1601. The play expresses how prince Hamlet pledges revenge on his uncle Claudius, who had murdered his father. Claudius then took the throne and married Hamlet’s mother Gertrude. The play vividly shows much madness—both real and fake, and from extreme rage to overwhelming grief—and analyzes themes of treachery, revenge, love, and moral corruption.
This play is a MUST and everyone will enjoy it!
A romantic, heart-warming, bust-your–gut, laugh out loud comedy of fairies, love, and a donkey head! “The course of true love never did run smooth,” comments Lysander, and that is totally true for this play! An ironic love story that humorously, but timidly, sweeps the audience into a moral lesson about following your heart. A must-see for the comedian within you!
Here’s a story of a forbidden love between two teenagers in the romantic era of mystery and loyalty to one’s heart. The teenagers are in love, but of course parents have to just get in the way! Secret marriges, untimely deaths, and fights are just a few of the things you’ll get out of this play! "What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Shakespeare was forever wrong with that line: The names of Romeo and Juliet are forever etched into the hearts of the people who see this play!
" great disorder rampant in the city by the inordinate haunting of great multitudes of people, especially youth, to plays, interludes, namely occasion of frays and quarrels, evil practices of incontinency in great inns having chambers and secret places adjoning to their open stages and galleries, inveigling and alluring of maids, especially of orphans and good citizens' children under age, to privy and unmeet contracts, the publishing of unchaste, uncomely, and unshamefast speeches and doings . . . uttering of popular, busy, and seditious matters, and many other corruptions of youth and other enormities . . . [Thus] from henceforth no play, comedy, tragedy, interlude, not public show shall be openly played or showed within the liberties of the City . . . and that no innkeeper, tavernkeeper, nor other person whatsoever within the liberties of this City shall openly show or play . . . any interlude, comedy, tragedy, matter, or show which shall not be first perused and allowed . . . "
see the Globe Theater! On that day, a fire broke out
because the cannon used for special effects misfired
and shot towards the thatched roof, causing it to burn
down. It is not known if there were any casualties during
this event, but there definately was panic! Finaly, in 1614,
the Globe was rebuilt. So remember: Don’t go back to
June 29, 1613 unless you know how to be fire-proof!
