The ShakeStream

The Little Theatre is pleased to announce The ShakeStream! This April, May, and June, we will stream two of William Shakespeare’s greatest plays, and an evening of three original one-plays based on a third. Please accept our personal invitation to enjoy—and support—The ShakeStream!
Saturday, April 24, 7:00
(In honor of William Shakespeare’s 457th birthday)
This outstanding 2016 production features Scott Colin as Hamlet, supported by an exceptional cast. Set in the Jazz Age of the 1920’s, with local jazz greats Nick Driscoll and Ken McGraw adding original music to the iconic soliloquies. You’ll treasure this unique Hamlet for all the right reasons.
Saturday, May 22, 7:00
King Lear
Little Theatre’s memorable 2020 production of Lear sets the towering tragedy in the Woodstock era, a time of division like that of the original play. Kevin Costley brings a lifetime of theatrical experience to the lead. Local blues legend Matt Bennick adds his fiery electric guitar to the sensory mix. A Lear of dreams.
Saturday, June 12, 7:00
Three Romances about Macbeth
A delightful evening of three one-act plays, all conceived around productions of Macbeth. Three pairs of lovers explore their past and future in the light of Shakespeare’s gothic masterpiece. Macbeth itself is featured prominently. Local playwright David Parmelee directs a marvelous cast in this NEPTA-winning show.
None of the three episodes of the ShakeStream requires a ticket. They will stream online on Facebook and on the Little Theatre of Wilkes-Barre YouTube channel, thanks to the generous support of our sponsorship team. You can do your part, too!
