Shakespeare in Love

August 9, 2019 7:00PM

Description:

"Shakespeare in Love' is the stage adaption of the academy award-winning Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard screenplay, of the same name. Adapted for the stage by Lee Hall with music by Paddy Cunneen and performed with special permission from Samuel French.

Amplified Arts will be the first theatre company in NH to perform it on stage!  A cast filled with local, award-winning talent will play such roles as Will Shakespeare, Kit Marlow, and Queen Elizabeth I. All set in Elizabeth's England in 1593.

Done in contemporary language with Shakespeare's verse, no accents, and live renaissance music, this show is not
one you will want to miss!  The story follows Will, who has writer's block and Viola, who would do anything to be on the stage. They meet and sparks fly, and soon their love affair becomes the inspiration for Shakespeare's epic tale of the star crossed lovers in 'Romeo & Juliet'.

In AMP’s intimate space, you will be only a few feet away from this play with music as the Bard borrows language from his beloved London to create a masterpiece of love and lost! This is a dramatic comedy, so there is sword fighting, fine acting and even a bit with a dog!

The show opens August 8th with a Dinner and Show event at an increased ticket price. Two additional shows on August 9th and 10th offers our regular rates and discounts for members.

Tickets on sale now as www.amplifiedartsnh.com . You can also follow Amplified Arts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
