Remixed Rogue Style

Shakespeare(ish) is twisted love poetry on the edge of madness and merriment –a sword fight with masked kings, prophesying puppets, and singing clowns. In this hyper-fun, hyper-family-friendly performance, Rogue Artists Ensemble digs down to the heart of the Bard, sharing the joys, the sorrows and the non-stop action of the greatest playwright of all time. The Rogues bring their “whirligig of ferocious creativity” (LA Weekly) to remix Shakespeare’s iconic scenes and make the Bard roll over in, and out of, his grave.

As seen at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Cal Arts, Annenberg Community Beach House, The Chance Theater and the UC Irvine New Swan Shakespeare Festival.

Upcoming Performances:

August 22 at 4pm
(with a puppet-making workshop for children at 3pm)
at Kings Road Park
1000 Kings Road, West Hollywood 90069
Remember to bring a chair or blanket and your picnic!
