Piknik Theatre 2024

Piknik Theatre ~ The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)

Sunday, August 4, 2024 - 6:00pm to 7:15pm
  • Library Lawn - Outside of the Children's Storytime Room
A one-act comedy: All 37 plays in 75 minutes.

Live Shakespeare on the Library Lawn. Free performance. Bring a picnic basket and your own seating.

An irreverent, fast-paced romp through the Bard’s plays, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) was London’s longest-running comedy having clocked a very palpable nine years in London’s West End at the Criterion Theatre. Join these crazy characters in tights as they weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories and Tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter.

***In case of rain, the performance will move to Library Hall.

About Piknik Theatre

Piknik Theatre is a nonprofit summer repertory theater company in Steamboat Springs, whose mission is to enhance and diversify the performing arts in the Yampa Valley region. Piknik Theatre does theater outdoors, in a picnic setting, through partnerships with local performers and professional guest artists, to build a spirit of community. Community means theater that touches all ages, abilities, cultures, including genres from Shakespeare to Seuss, and is indelibly printed with the values of the Yampa Valley.

Originally founded in 1971, the company was resurrected in the summer of 2005 and has continued to produce shows and youth theater workshops each summer as part of our Piknik Theatre Festival, as well as producing shows, classes and workshops during the school year.
