BENNINGTON — Bennington Community Theater will present “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)” by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield for six performances, beginning Nov. 6 at the Bennington Center for the Performing Arts.

This comedic tour de force combines classical theatre, side-splitting slapstick, ingenious improv, witty wordplay, colorful tights and a totally unrealistic timeline to create an evening of live entertainment that will leave audiences wanting more.

Remounted from a successful Pre-COVID-19 Valentine’s Weekend run, the cast of Mike Cutler, Joe Mozer and Chris Restino, along with director Todd Hjelt, have dusted off their tights and frilly shirts in an effort to bring a little more joy and culture to Southern Vermont. All 37 Shakespearean plays will be presented, or at least mentioned, as the cast of overachievers creates an evening of infectious fun.

The six performance dates for “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)” are Fridays and Saturdays, Nov. 6, 7, 13 and 14 at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays, Nov. 8 and 15 at 2:00 pm For tickets and information, visit bpacvt.org/tickets or call 802-447-0564. COVID-19 NOTICE: Seating is limited to 46 seats and reservations are mandatory. The lobby and bar will be closed and masks are mandatory while in the theater and lobby area, with temperature checks upon entry. Run-time will be approximately 90 minutes.
