ECCC Encore Players to Present ŒThe Complete Works of William Shakespeare¹ Nov. 10-12

> The East Central Community College Encore Players will present their annual fall dinner theater at 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, November 10-12, in Mabry Memorial Cafeteria on the Decatur campus. This year’s presentation, “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)” by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield, is directed by Jessica Price.
> During the presentation, three actors will do the seemingly impossible: act through Shakespeare’s entire canon – 37 plays – in 90 minutes by summarizing the canon through football plays, songs and outrageously condensed mash-up titles.
> Price said, “‘The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)’ hilariously summarizes all of Shakespeare’s plays, using reenactments and audience participation. It is famous for holding the “self-proclaimed” record for the shortest production of Hamlet at 43 seconds!”
> Cast members include Anastasia Crout and Alexandria Crout, both graduates of Lake High School, and Jack Vidals of Newton County High School.
> Tickets are $15 and are available by calling the college switchboard at 601-635-6215.
> The dinner menu includes salad, roast beef, baked chicken, potato casserole, green beans, roasted vegetables and assorted desserts.
