Set in 1595 the story of two brothers, who just happen to be the nemeses of a little known Mr. William Shakespeare, are desperate to write a hit play. A local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre will involve Singing, Dancing, AND Acting, all at the same time! Gasp! The brothers then decide to write a (wait for it) MUSICAL! The world’s very first musical!

Sometimes “wacky” is exactly what you want in a musical. This one is tuneful and quite hilarious, and it will be just as much of a joy to work on as it will to bring it to NE Ohio audiences.
