Shakespeare in Love
by Wimberley Players
Feb. 23 - Mar. 17
Inspired by the popular film of the same name and adapted for the stage by Lee Hall, Shakespeare in Love offers a delightful glimpse into the life of the young William Shakespeare as he finds himself hopelessly in love with the beautiful Viola, who becomes the muse for his iconic love story. Set against the backdrop of Elizabethan England, this enchanting comedy brims with mistaken identities, backstage antics, the enduring power of love, and a bit with a dog.
Director Bridget Farias-Gates, known for her imaginative approach to storytelling and attention to detail, brings her own creativity to the production, infusing the stage with all the charm and vibrancy of Renaissance-era London. With this abundantly talented cast of actors, live musicians, and creative designers, this show promises to transport audiences to a world where words become poetry and passion ignites the soul.
The Wimberley Players Artistic Committee “is thrilled to present Shakespeare in Love to our audiences. This production celebrates the magic of live theatre and the enduring legacy of Shakespeare's timeless works. Under Bridget's direction, our cast and designers have poured their hearts into bringing this enchanting story to life, and we cannot wait to share it with our patrons."
Produced by Karin Cunningham.
