Shakespeare Players
The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) {Revised} written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield
, and originally performed by that trio as the "Reduced Shakespeare Company" in 1987 in Edinburgh, and later in London, will be somewhat expanded this coming week by the Searsport District Middle/High School Theater Department, aka "the not-so-reduced Shakespeare Company", or the "somewhat expanded Shakespeare Company."  All of Shakespeare's plays will be performed/parodied in this laugh-out-loud comedy by a cast of twenty-five, sometimes playing themselves, other times playing a multitude of the Bard's memorable characters.

Opening night is Thursday, November 13, at the Searsport District Middle/High School cafetorium.  The play will also be performed Friday the 14th, and Saturday the 15th.  Show times start at 7:00 each night.  Tickets are $5 and are available at the door.
