"The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)"
You won’t need Cliff Notes to thoroughly enjoy this irreverent, spirited production drawn from 37 of Shakespeare's "greatest hits."  It comes to Kelsey on Fridays, Oct. 26 and Nov. 2 at 8 p.m., Saturdays, Oct. 27 and Nov. 3 at 8 p.m., and Sundays, Oct. 28 and Nov. 4 at 3 p.m.  The audience is invited to an Opening Night Gala following the performance on Oct. 26 for refreshments with the cast and crew.

You'll delight in the riotous misreading of dialogue, the clunky female impersonations, and the comic gags that have to be seen to be fully appreciated.

"Alfonso’s Lazer Vaudeville"
This seven-foot-tall, fire-breathing dragon named Alfonso will dazzle the whole family in two unforgettable performances on Saturday, Nov. 3 at 2 and 4 p.m. at Kelsey Theatre.

With Alfonso as master of ceremonies, the show offers a wondrous mix of high tech laser magic and the classic antics of vaudeville comedy, juggling and acrobatics.  It is brought to the stage by three veteran performers: Carter Brown, formerly with the Ringling Brothers Circus, Carden International Circus and the Monte Carol Festival du Cirque; Jeffrey Damont, an award winning juggler who has delighted audiences around the world; and Cindy Marvell, the first woman to win the International Juggling Association Championship.
