Richard III

Richard III

Remember That Guy We Love to Loathe? Yes, exactly! Who else?!
The Boar…
aka Crookback

With 2020 behind us, we will now freely flash a 2-ton klieg light on what makes a dysfunctional dynasty.  In our Web of Dysfunction, we weave together the best of characters in the play – from the Boar’s right hand, Buckingham, who manipulates him, to his wife Lady Ann who loathes him, to his sister in law, Queen Consort, Elizabeth, who threatens him, to his enemy (Queen) Margaret of Anjou who curses him ….and finally, his Mother, Cecily Neville, who rejects him. 

This production will be Live Streamed on Vimeo. While the Players will connect via Zoom, we will be using a variety of technologies to break out of the familiar Zoom grid, and to create a multi-media performance piece.

In addition to weekly Zoom rehearsals, we will be meeting in person approximately once a month – outdoors, masked and socially distanced! The in-person rehearsals will not be mandatory – we understand if your Player cannot participate.

Ages: 7th grade through 12th grade

Tuesdays from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm
(Rehearsals will begin on December 8. We will not meet December 22 & 29.)

Performance Dates:
Friday, April 23, 2021
Saturday, April 24, 2021
Friday, April 30, 2021
Saturday, May 1, 2021
