KING LEAR

"They told me I was every-thing; 'tis a lie..."

Approaching retirement, a once mighty ruler divides his kingdom up among his three daughters, only to make the calamitous mistake of putting his faith in the wrong children. As a family squabble turns into a civil war, the bonds of blood are tested, and human nature is exposed at its most savage and extreme. 

Join Shakespearean Youth Theatre this spring for Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy.

Performing April 21 - 30 at the Gremlin Theatre in St Paul, MN.

Running time: 3 hours, including intermission.

Content Advisory: While audiences of ALL ages are welcome at all SYT shows, SYT recommends King Lear for ages 9 and up due to stage violence, haze and strobe effects, and loud noises. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to call the box office for more information.

THE COMEDY OF ERRORS

One day...

One city...

One imminent beheading...

And two sets of identical twins separated by a tumultuous thunderstorm years ago and shipwrecked in separate lands who are destined to spend their lives searching for the happiness only familial reunification can bring.

These are the ingredients for the wackiest and laugh-out-loud funniest play Shakespere ever wrote. In the most ridiculous farce this side of Noises Off, we meet Antipholus and Dromio, and we also meet Antipholus and Dromio, two sets of twins separated at birth who look so much alike that they cannot “be distinguished but by names” (even though they have the same name? just go with it). Add to this chaos a romantically-starved housewife, her nerdy sister, a duke cut from the cloth of a Midwestern dad, an elderly convict who keeps urging his own execution (it's honestly kinda awkward), an incompetant exorcist, and a whole host of wild characters inhabiting the strange and spooky land of Ephesus.

Join the SYT summer ensemble for a comedy with a surprisingly relevant class-conscious message, and rediscover the Bard at his greatest height of pants-peeing hilarity.

Performing July 21 - August 5 at the Crane Theater, in Minneapolis, MN.

Running time: 90 minutes, with no intermission. 

Content Advisory: While audiences of ALL ages are welcome at all SYT shows, SYT recommends The Comedy of Errors for ages 9 and up due to comedic stage violence, coarse langauge, haze and strobe effects, loud noises, and spooky elements. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to call the box office for more information.

LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST

"We are wise girls to mock our lovers so."

As soon the King of Navarre and his three besties swear a vow “to fast, to study, and to see no woman” for the course of three years time, their oaths are immediately put in jeopardy by the arrival of the Princess of France and her three besties, whose presence may yield something more valuable than what can only be found in books.

In a dazzling display of language, slapstick, and testaments of romance so gorgeous as to be worthy of your most embarrassing ugly-cry, Love’s Labour’s Lost takes its audience on an unparalleled journey in the Shakespeare canon, as a disparate group of young people come together through love and passion to forge a better and more caring future for themselves and their peers.

Join Shakespearean Youth Theatre this summer for a play that might have emerged had Shakespeare sat down with James Joyce on a late spring evening and decided to collaborate on a sparkling rom-com.

Performing July 28 - August 6 at the Crane Theater in Minneapolis, MN.

Running time: 2.5 hours, including intermission.

Content Advisory: While audiences of ALL ages are welcome at all SYT shows, SYT recommends Love's Labour's Lost for ages 9 and up due to haze and strobe effects and loud noises. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to call the box office for more information.
