Friends, rebels, starfighters, lend me your ears!
On Monday, July 28 at 7:30 p.m. at Mid-City Theatre, the Royal Players of Alderaan are proud to present a one-night-only reading of
William Shakespeare’s Star Wars:
Verily, A New Hope.
William Shakespeare’s Star Wars was not actually written by William Shakespeare, but by a brilliant human named Ian Doescher.)
If you are not familiar with this wonderful work, it is, as you might imagine, Star Wars Episode IV told in iambic pentameter. If you love Shakespeare AND Star Wars, your head just might explode.
Rich Arnold, Trina Beck, Joe Seibert, Richard Hutton, Tracey Collins, Kyle Daigrepont, AshleyRose Bailey, Beau Hoffacker, Matthew Mickal, Fred Nuccio, Matt Standley, and Amanda Zirkenbach.
Also, there will be lightsabers.
Best of all, this magical evening is FREE...
