Richard III

by William Shakespeare

Featuring Artistic Director Dan McCleary in the title role with an ensemble that includes TSC favorites Johnny Lee Davenport, Paul Kiernan, and Caley Milliken, TSC’s haunting production of Richard III takes full advantage of Halloween (All Hallow’s Eve) and the recent unearthing of the painful remains of King Richard’s skeleton, here given modern life and re-tried by a cast of everlasting Souls. 

DATE:             October 31, 2014
VENUE:           Germantown Performing Arts Center/Duncan-Williams                                         Performance Hall
                      1801 Exeter Road, Germantown, TN 38138



Twelfth Night

by William Shakespeare

Treated as a holiday festival in an intimate music hall, Shakespeare’s musical comedy joyously pushes the boundaries of role and gender reversal when Viola shipwrecks in Illyria, dresses in drag as Cesario and falls madly for Count Orsino, who is heartsick for Lady Olivia, who is the apple of the yellow cross-gartered Malvolio’s eye.  Toby Belch, Andrew Aguecheek, and the singing Feste never let the love story get too serious.  Celebrate the winter solstice and the                                                          festival of light with Shakespeare’s most charming comedy.

What students and teachers are saying about TSC's Student Matinees:

I don't believe there could be any performing arts company that could satisfy my love for the arts any better than the Tennessee Shakespeare Company.
- Caitlyn Knot, 11th Grade, Middle College High School
My students were on the edge of their seats. I enjoyed watching them as much as I enjoyed watching the performers! It is imperative that students are given good first experiences with Shakespeare. So often they are turned off by having to simply read the plays, or they see less than stellar performances. My students were entranced, delighted, and asking for more.
- Ann Lane Neal, Director of Theatre Arts, St. Agnes Academy
Many of my students, who had expressed trepidation in understanding Shakespeare, were surprised to find that they not only understood but also enjoyed the play.
- Janelle Phipps, English Teacher, Harding Academy
I don't want my comments to seem hyperbolic—but my students and I feel that this was the richest literary experience we have ever had.
- Julia Goodwin, English Teacher, Bartlett HS
