2017 SHAKESPEARE SEASON
Through the laughter, we find characters trying to stake a claim to true love, true friendship, and true justice–and ultimately coming to terms, as we all do, with what life throws at them. We hope you will join us for a season that promises to raise questions about what we value most and the (sometimes absurd) lengths we will go to achieve them.
The BTE’s 2017 season is a bold step forward for our theater company, and we could not be more excited. Now more than ever, we are demonstrating our commitment to the growth of theater artists with a yearlong series of workshops on acting and directing for our first-ever Brass Tacks troupe. The sixteen strong, talented artists that make up our 2017 troupe will practice various techniques and hone their skills, eventually bringing all that work to the stage in three of Shakespeare’s plays. If you like your Shakespeare well-acted and well-told, you will not want to miss these three productions. It will be a season like none you have ever seen. –James Ingagiola, Artistic Director
