BCA “We Bring The Stars To You!”

Improvised Shakespeare Co. | http://www.improvisedshakespeare.com/

8 PM, Grand Ballroom

Friday, September 18, 2015 (Dads' Weekend)

The Improvised Shakespeare Co. creates a fully improvised Shakespearean masterpiece right before your very eyes! Each of the players has brushed up on his "thee's" and "thou's" to bring you an evening of off-the-cuff comedy using the language and themes of William Shakespeare. All of the dialogue is said for the first time, the characters are created as you watch, and if ever you're wondering where the story is going...so are they! The night could reveal a tragedy, comedy, or history. Each play is completely improvised, so each play is entirely new!
