Save the Date - Shakespeare's Fairytales coming April 28th-29th

Sweetline Theatre Company presents

Shakespeare's Fairytales: Owl Was a Baker's Daughter

Tales of princesses turned outlaws, poisoned apples, Amazon warriors, gods and goddesses, monsters and mayhem: come with us on a journey into the fairytale beginnings of classical theatre.

“Shakespeare’s Fairytales” shines a light on the origins of playwright William Shakespeare’s most beloved stories, including The Merchant of Venice, King Lear, The Winter’s Tale, As You Like It, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Directed by Danielle Irvine with story coaching by Dale Jarvis, “Shakespeare’s Fairytales” stars Elizabeth Hicks, Lynn Panting, Lauren Shepherd, and Alanah Whiteway, spinning the tales that inspired theatre’s greatest stories.

It’s a show you will love, more than fresh meat loves salt.
