“Othello” opens this weekend

Our annual Shakespearian production is back. We proudly present the tale of William Shakespeare’s Othello. Against all customs, Othello and Desdemona fall in love; however Iago, jilted over Othello’s rise to power, unleashes his revenge by ensnaring Othello’s friend Cassio and duping the witless Rodrigo. The tale of Othello and his ill-fated love to Desdemona will be told in an updated unique setting.

Fridays and Saturdays $20; Thursdays and Sundays $17

Othello runs May 12-20.  Performances on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays begin at 8 pm. Performances on Sundays begin at 2 pm.
