Can three people really cover thirty-seven Shakespeare plays in less than two hours? This fast-firing comedy does just that as it parodies all of the Shakespeare plays (plus the sonnets!) with only three performers in two acts. This play is full of energy as the characters run across the stage and keep you guessing how they will pull off the next play.

Some of the jokes are adult based.

"As punishment for rebuffing a powerful witch, a selfish prince becomes a true 'beast’ until someone will love him for himself. Many years later, a poor widow stumbles onto the castle and innocently plucks a forbidden rose. The Beast sentences her to death, but first allows her to return home and bid farewell to her family. There we meet her two unpleasant daughters, Isabel and Marguerite, and her nasty sons-in-law, Greedo and Graspo. They hear her story and think she’s insane. But her third daughter, Beauty, agrees to go to the castle and stay with the Beast if her mother’s life is spared. When Beast kindly permits Beauty to return home briefly, Graspo and Greedo sneak into the castle, hoping to steal a treasure. In a wildly funny and exciting scene, not only do they fight the Beast, they fight the furniture! With the aid of an enchanted mirror, Beauty sees that Beast doubts her love for him and she returns to the castle. Her love restores Beast to his true form and happiness reigns."

When Captain Hook sends his right-hand man Smee on a quest to capture Peter Pan, it’s seemingly business as usual ...at first. Little does Hook realize what fantastic adventures await him and his pirate posse in their search for the elusive Peter Pan. Mistaken identities, ever-morphing clouds, a classy crocodile, some very lost boys, and a fickle shadow all add to the mayhem. Meanwhile, Mr. and Mrs. Darling embark on a quest of their own and find themselves trekking everywhere from Hawaii to the North Pole in search of their three missing children. With help from the earth-friendly Neverlanders, exotic Neverland creatures, and faithful Tinker Bell, the Darling children are found, disputes are ultimately resolved, and everyone–including Captain Hook–finds a place where they truly belong.

This musical production is part of Missoula Children's Theatre's unique international touring project and is presented locally by The Dalles Theatre Company. Their productions are complete with costumes, scenery, props, and makeup.

"Share this timeless and enduring classic about the March sisters’ journey from childhood to maturity during the American Civil War. Audiences of all generations will enjoy acquainting — or reacquainting — themselves with the sisters: Meg, the eldest; Jo, the high-spirited tomboy; Amy, the self-centered beauty; and gentle Beth, as well as their beloved Marmee and Father. Together the March family learns to endure both good times and bad as they share the joys and pains of growing up. This adaptation skillfully compresses the novel while still including milestones such as Meg’s declaration of independence from the tyranny of Aunt March and Amy’s trip to Europe. The play ends with Jo’s realisation of her life’s work — the publication of her first novel. Interlaced with warmth, family loyalty and traditional values, all these important events provide us with a better understanding of our own lives. Penned by Louisa May Alcott 140 years ago, this much-loved classic tale’s message is still relevant for audiences today."
