College of the Siskiyous Fall 2020 Zoom Production - Shakespeare's Greatest Hits

Shakespeare Collage

The COS theater program is excited to announce that it is facing this fall's challenges head-on with an innovative live Zoom production of Shakespeare's Greatest Hits.

Want the best parts of the Bard (intrigue, romance, comedy, revenge) while skipping the worst parts of the Bard (subplots that go nowhere, uncomfortable resolutions, a warped version of Tudor history)? Try Shakespeare's Greatest Hits!

Featuring scenes from "King Lear", "Much Ado About Nothing", "Henry IV", "Twelfth Night", "As You Like It", "Measure for Measure", Love's Labour's Lost", and "Othello", this production flits through the First Folio and provides a sampling of poetry and prose. Come for the brilliant and sometimes bawdy banter of Shakespeare's work and stay for the musical interludes that set the virtual stage. This production will be staged with as many of the original practices Shakespeare and his contemporaries would have used as Zoom can accommodate: doubling of parts, strong adherence to the text, and a fast pace. It has also been cast with the best modern practice: gender and race blind casting.

Performances will be broadcast live via Zoom and are scheduled for November 18, 19, 20, and 21. For more information contact the Theatre department.
