Nov. 16-19: SJCT Family Theatre: Playing with Shakespeare and British Humor

SJCT Family Theatre San Juan Community Theatre's next Family Theatre presentation is Shakespeare Rocks! written by Steve Titford and directed by Penelope Haskew. The play runs from Nov. 16-19.

“It’s fluffy and light,” said SJCT Family Theatre Youth and Program Director Penelope Haskew when describing her family theatre production for 2017. “There’s no deep themes or social messages. It’s about fun with Shakespeare!”

And, mixed up in that fun in Shakespeare Rocks! by Steve Titford, is a little history lesson about the life and times of the famous Bard and how he came ‘to be’. “The cast and audience will come away with a deeper appreciation of his history,” notes Penelope.

The play centers on Aubrey, The Rough Shakespeare Company's pretentious director, who obtains what appears to be William Shakespeare's lost diary. Along with Al, a down-to-earth assistant, the pair decide to embark on an exclusive adaption of the flamboyant bard's personal journal.

The featured songs are modern and full of energy, with a plot that is complete with puns and tongue and cheek humor—humor that definitely has a British twist to it (Penelope says look for the possible casting of a funny translator for the island audiences).
