Shakespeare @ Loyola College – Blackfriars Stage Company

There’s so much going on in Baltimore this week!

The Blackfriars Stage Company, the touring troupe for the Blackfriars Theater, located at the American Shaksepeare Center (Staunton, VA),  is coming to Loyola College’s McManus Theater this week to perform three plays — one each night on September 24, 25 and 26 — as part of their 2008/2009 Stark Raving Sane Tour!

All shows begin at 7:30 p.m. in McManus Theater in the DeChiaro College Center.

There is no charge for admission and all shows are open to the public.

Wednesday, September 24: Shakespeare’s “The Comedy of Errors
Thursday, September 25: Shakespeare’s “Hamlet
Friday, September 26: Tom Stoppard’s “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

This young, innovative acting company stages fast-paced shows that recreate for modern audiences Shakespeare’s plays and other classics while remaining true to the original texts. The productions include original music compositions, minimal stage props and costuming, attention to the complexities of Shakespeare’s language, lots of energy and audience interaction.

DeChiaro College Center is off of the east-west street just before the overpass just north of Coldspring Boulevard, east of Charles Street and West of Milbrook Road. It is between Maryland Hall & the Andrew White Student Center.

Personally, my favorite Shakespeare play is Much Ado about Nothing though I admit I’ve only read or seen a few of his plays.
