Current Production 

 

William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet

William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet opens February 13th, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Often thought of as the quintessential story of star-crossed lovers, at the heart of the work are themes exploring prejudice, hatred and the consequences of violence. Much like Fun House’s acclaimed 2013 production of Hamlet, this production, directed by Jeff Swearingen, is an intimate and classical mounting of the work, presented in its original language and edited only for time. Reduced in size from often produced Shakespearean spectacles and adding the device of live musical underscoring by accomplished musician, Thiago Nascimento, Fun House’s Romeo and Juliet is perfect as an accessible “first” Shakespearean production for youth audiences as well as being presented as a traditional work, fit for aficionados of The Bard. February 13th - 22nd. Tickets $8.00 (Suggested Audience - Ages 10 and up).

Actor's Exploration Series

The Actor’s Exploration Series is aimed at challenging our young actors while pushing the boundaries of what audiences expect to see from “children’s theater”. Going beyond the traditional models of youth productions, our Actor’s Exploration Series centers on giving young actors the opportunity to explore complex material and for audiences to be exposed to playwrights, dramatic formats and subject matter not thought of as children’s fare. It is an unparalleled educational opportunity for the next generation of actors and an entertainment option for the theatrically savvy as well as those just being introduced to the art of theatre.
