Bits of the Bard


Bits of the Bard is a Shakespearean sampler which includes sonnets, monologues from the comedies and tragedies, ballet and songs based on Shakespearean works, plus some parodies that take light hearted fun at Shakespeare’s expense. The production is a patchwork quilt of talent, creativity, levels of experience, different ages, and people from different ends of Nassau County all pooling their efforts to produce this show.

We hope to leave you humming and thinking as you leave the theatre!
