The Silly Shakespeare Company ® has presented original, user-friendly versions of Shakespeare’s works for over a decade, enabling audiences to grasp each brilliant story line, no matter how familiar (…or not) they are with The Bard’s Elizabethan English.
The Silly Shakespeare Company’s Barmaid narrators describe upcoming scenes, introduce characters, and explain the plot, using references to current events, hilariously spiced with familiar pop-culture references.
The Silly Shakespeare Company shows thrive on audience participation to create a unique “Shakespeare-meets-the-Rocky Horror-Picture-Show” experience.
