NAKED SHAKESPEARE

"Everyone's favorite Elizabethan entertainment group"
- Portland Press Herald, 10/21/09

The mission of Naked Shakespeare is to allow actors and audiences to experience the power of Shakespeare's language and imagery through listening and speaking the text. Our performances showcase the words of the Bard in performances in non-traditional venues presented without sets, lights and costumes, allowing the audience's imagination to take center stage.







WILL'S THRILLS

Join Naked Shakespeare members past and present for a romp through the canon

We are celebrating our rich 10-year history with a show that brings together actors from many of our different incarnations to present scenes and solilqouies from plays as diverse as Romeo and Juliet to Henry VI, part two. If you enjoyed our "Sonnets and Soliloquies" series on Wharf Street, this show presents great chance to remember what makes Naked Shakespeare so unique. If you have never seen us perform before, come find out what we are all about!
