About the event

Come hither, and hear the classic story of STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE, but with a slight Shakespearean twist! A one night, readers theatre event at Seraphim Theatre. Friday, June 21st at 7pm. Doors will open at 6:30pm. All general seating. Will have one 15 minute intermission.

What is “readers theatre?” - Readers theatre is a form of live entertainment in which a panel of actors on stage perform with limited set and costumes a production with the help of a script in which they all read/perform from. Readers theatre is like watching voice actors perform but through the lens of a stage production.

Shakespeare STAR WARS? - Yes! Return once more to a galaxy far, far away with this retelling of George Lucas's epic in the style of the immortal Bard of Avon. The saga of a wise space knight, and an evil lord, of a beautiful princess held captive and our young hero coming of age, this retelling abounds with all the valor and villainy of Shakespeare's greatest plays. 'Tis a tale told by fretful Droids, full of faithful Wookies and fearsome Stormtroopers, who miss… pretty much everything.

It is all re-imagined in glorious iambic pentameter, William Shakespeare's Star Wars will astound and edify Rebels and Imperials alike. Zounds! This is the show you have been looking for.

ONE NIGHT ONLY!

All proceeds from this show go as a donation towards our kids' Second Star Performers troupe to help keep tuition down and scholarships available for families in need. Tickets for this event are $10, and will be general seating.
