As part of the Centennial Homecoming & Family Weekend celebration, NNU will present “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged).” The fall play is being put on by the Department of Communication Studies and will be directed by Rick Strader. Performances are November 7, 8 and 9 in the NNU Little Theatre.

This fast-paced play was originally performed in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1987, and quickly earned the title of London’s second-longest-running comedy after a decade at the Criterion Theatre. Written by Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield, former members of the Reduced Shakespeare Company, this three-person show features all 37 of Shakespeare’s works in 97 minutes, trimming some of the bulkier elements, like full plot and poetry of speech, to give the essential experience of Shakespeare.

Breathtaking to watch, the show is full of energy as the cast run, jump and leap across the stage. Hilarious use of leggings, wigs, skirts and props bring to life Romeo, Juliet, Julius Caesar, the witches from “Macbeth,” Hamlet, Ophelia and many more of Shakespeare’s characters.

This three-person cast is played by Riley Fairgieve (Star, Idaho), Bethany Jordan Hazen (Greenleaf, Idaho) and Zachary Mason (Enumclaw, Wash.) While it is a three-person play, multiple students will take part in this production as stage hands. Those students are Carlyn Jones (Nampa, Idaho), Cameron Spencer Williams (Boise, Idaho), Megan Pope (Polson, Mont.), Glena Rose Garvey (Colville, Wash.) and Emily Berquist (Meridian, Idaho). These roles are vital as this play is highly interactive and surprising.

Show times for the play are Thursday at 7 p.m., Friday at 4 p.m. and Saturday at 1:30 and 4:30 p.m. Tickets are $4 for children/students (under 18), $6 for adults and $5 for seniors (60+). Tickets may be purchased at the door or online at nnu.edu/homecoming.
