Previous productions from Classics on the Rocks...

A Midsummer Night's Dream (Summer 2019)

One of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies filled with frolicking fairies, a ridiculous troupe of actors, and the most epic love triangle ever seen.

Shakesday 2019: Pride, Power, and Promises

We kicked off the year with our annual birthday celebration and performance honoring Shakespeare's 455th birthday on April 27th. Shakesday: Pride, Power, and Promises will be an evening of Shakespearean comedy and tragedy exploring what exactly pride and power are, and what happens when promises are made and broken within Shakespeare (and the hilarity and destruction that ensues).

No Commoner Tale (March 2019 Staged Reading)

Helen of Sparta arrives at the dysfunctional household of Troy's ruling family, complete with brides-to-be, an all-seeing sister-in-law, warriors in preparation, and a devoted servant with his beloved royal chicken. But before the Trojan ships are launched in the would-be queen's defense, a jury of siblings must decide the fate of one of their own--and understand what really brought Helen to Troy. No Commoner Tale, or The Final Trials of Helen of Troy is a timely, new verse play that tells the messier version of a familiar story, in a world where women are traded for political advantage and even the most valiant men will sacrifice integrity to protect their power.

The Winter's Tale (Summer 2018)

The elements are familiar - a mad king, consuming jealousy, pastoral comedic festivities, disguises, and star-crossed lovers. But the story continues to surprise us, with its twists and turns from tragedy to comedy, from winter to spring, from life ended to life reborn. A chronicle of jealousy, loss, and finding your way back home - Winter's Tale is an interesting romp through every human emotion. 

Shakesday 2018: Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered

In honor of William Shakespeare's 454th birthday and Classics on the Rocks’  5th anniversary we are celebrating with some of the Bard’s best comedic and tragic scenes exploring misunderstanding, miscommunication, and mistaken identity. This one-night-only event will have bewitching beauties, bothered beaus, and bewildered bawdy clowns packed into one big birthday celebration...we weave together these fascinating tales of star-crossed lovers, bumbling fools, and witty women in one hysterical and touching evening. 

Twelfth Night (Summer 2017)

A shipwreck, mistaken identities, women dressed as men, and a most wonderful love triangle. Does it get any more Shakespearean? This is the quintessential love story.

Shakesday 2017: Love & Laughter

In honor of William Shakespeare's 453rd birthday we are celebrating with the Bard's best scenes filled with romance, intrigue, and comedy. We all could use some extra love and an evening of raucous laughter right now and this one-night-only event is certain to delight.  You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll sigh with joy and longing... Join us as we weave together these fascinating tales of star-crossed lovers and bumbling clowns in one hysterical and touching evening.

Julius Caesar (Summer 2016)

It may seem that success is gained by ambition, passion, and dedication alone. This is not true. Its thought that removing a problem solves the problem. This is not true. In this cautionary tale of betrayal and faithfulness, we explore what happens when well-meaning people striving to create change forget the one thing that matters most...trust.

Shakesday 2016: The Women of Shakespeare

In honor of William Shakespeare's 452nd birthday (and the 400th anniversary of his death) we are celebrating the Bard's brilliance by taking a look at the iconic female characters he created. Together, we'll explore how these classic yet surprisingly modern women handle love, power, strength, and even death. From Rosalind to Juliet to Lady Macbeth, we'll weave together their fascinating stories and explore what makes these women so intriguing and relevant even today. 

Merchant of Venice (Summer 2015)

Merchant of Venice, a story of friendship and loyalty, love and hate, faith and fervor. Join us as we take a humanized look at Shylock, the strong ties of friends and family, and explore what happens when you take life and love for granted pushing the boundaries just a little too far…

Shakesday 2015

Classics on the Rocks launches their season with Shakesday 2015! A one night only birthday celebration for the man we call Master Shakespeare. Shakesday 2015! also lovingly referred to as "Much Ado About the Merchant of Hamlet as told by the Merry Wives of Windsor in a Tempest with Sonnets" will be a fun and fabulous evening of scenes and sonnets wrapped up with a wine and birthday cake celebration.

As You Like It (Summer 2014)

As You Like It is Shakespeare's classic tale of loyalty and love. Join us on this spirited romp through the Forest of Arden, where we explore love, laughter, and misadventure. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll leave the theatre singing about... a horn?
