MS Fall Production: How the Bard Won the West

November 10-11, 2016

What happened when a group of actors took Shakespeare's plays into the Wild West? Mississippi river adventures, storytelling along the Oregon trail, theaters burning in San Francisco, stage coach robberies, Broadway riots, and Shakespeare riding on the back of an eagle! This isn't your Englishman's Poet of Politeness. Come learn a little hidden history as the WAMS acting ensemble presents HOW THE BARD WON THE WEST.
