Enjoy An Irreverent Romp Through Shakespeare's Plays At WJU’s Troy Theater

March 23, 2011 - Other News
A bold, irreverent romp through all of Shakespeare's plays in less than two hours is planned for the March performing arts presentation at Wheeling Jesuit University. "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare" (abridged) takes the stage at 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, March 24 – 26. "If you missed the sold out performances of this show at Oglebay Institute's Towngate Theater in March of 2009, this is a chance to see it again with the same cast," said Dave Henderson, Wheeling Jesuit performing arts coordinator. Henderson directed the play at Towngate in 2009 and is the director of the production at Troy. Written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield, this hysterical show is a reprise of the talents of local actor Tim Thompson of Oglebay Institute and Wheeling Jesuit alumni Mario Muscar '99 and Ryan Sears '02, as the brave trio brazenly blend the best of the Bard with the bottom of the absurdity barrel in this farcical feast of inspired lunacy. Both Muscar and Sears were active theater students when they attended Wheeling Jesuit. Muscar is a resident of Shadyside, Ohio and earned a master's in applied theology and Sears is from Martins Ferry, Ohio a degree in biology. Thompson is the director of youth theater at Oglebay Institute and has been an adjunct instructor at the University. "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare" is produced by special arrangement with Broadway Play Publishing, 56 East 81st Street, New York. All performances are free, on a first-come first seated basis and no reservations are needed. Troy Theater is located in Swint Hall and parking is free. The theater opens 30 minutes prior to curtain time. Please contact Henderson for more information, special accommodations or questions regarding special performances for groups or organizations, by email at, or by phone at 304-243-2095.
