The Complete Works of Wm Shakespeare (Abridged) [Revised] comes to FPAC!

The Complete Wrks of Wm Shakespeare (Abridged)September 16 - October 2 @ FPAC
F/Sa 7:30pm, Su 2pm
preview 9/15 7:30pm
by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield
directed by Elizabeth Guffey
starring Keith Anctil, Christopher Hoffmann and Julia Langham

"Three madcap actors weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare's comedies, histories, and tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter." From well known comedies and tragedies to the more obscure "problem plays" and even the sonnets -- this is a great introduction for those new to the Bard and a fun review for those familiar with the canon.
May not be suitable for children and very serious adults.

Join the cast for a Q&A after the Friday 9/23 performance.
High School Students: see the show for just $5 - tickets at the door only.

Our Mission

Freeport Players provides opportunities for local amateur actors to perform in roles often reserved for professionals. We involve members of our community in all aspects of the process, drawing on their talent and enthusiasm to create the "magic" of theater. Our volunteers are compensated for their time with fun, creative challenges, the chance to learn about the craft of theater, and, often, bonds of friendship that endure long after the curtain closes.

Your support makes a difference!
We are really proud of the work our volunteers do and we are grateful for the things our friends donate or loan to us to put on stage. But even with all that time and good will on the balance sheet, we rely on donations from people like you, people who have enjoyed what we do and know how important Freeport Players are to the community. As we strive to meet increasing costs and improve the experience we offer participants and audiences, we look to you for support.

To make a donation, you may either use the convenient, secure PayPal button below (you will be prompted to enter a donation amount), or mail your check or money order to Freeport Community Players, PO Box 483, Freeport, ME 04032.

Many thanks to our 2015 Sponsors
