Senior College Players to Present "Shakespeare in Shambles"

by Rosabelle Tifft

The third of the three Senior College Players comedies, “Shakespeare in Shambles” by Wade Bradford, will be presented on November 22 and 23 at the Gould Academy McLaughlin Trustees Auditorium, beginning at 7 pm. This entertaining play finds William Shakespeare (Ross Timberlake) dealing with ticket sales, an eccentric actor, Thomas Kemp (Norman Milliard), an insanely jealous wife (Ginger Kelly), and Lord Chamberlain (Roberta Taylor), who wants to close down the immoral theater. Everyone is anxious to find out what Shakespeare will write next - except for Queen Elizabeth (Bonnie Marshall), who may be the real playwright. Keeping their secret hidden takes a lot of work and costume changes, with the help and comings and goings of Gerty (Barb Dion), a boisterous “costume wench.”
