Shakespeare Fest Ends with Spoof: 3 Actors Perform All 37 Plays in 90 Minutes

The Carriage House Players’ annual Shakespeare Festival will conclude with a hilarious celebration and send-up of all things Shakespeare, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfeld.

Performances will be given on Sundays, September 10, 17 and 24, at 7:00 p.m. on the stage in the Vanderbilt Mansion courtyard. Rain location: The Vanderbilt Carriage House Theater, near the Mansion, at 180 Little Neck Road, Centerport.

Admission: $15 per person. To purchase tickets, call 516-557-1207.

“Three actors tackle all 37 of the Bard’s plays in one 90-minute romp,” said Evan Donnellan, director of the Carriage House Players and a member of its repertory company.

“They’ll race through Romeo and Juliet, present one of Shakespeare’s earliest tragedies as a cooking show, provide a modern spin on Othello, and present the definitive version of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy, Hamlet…if they can remember it,” he said.

“The show is filled with riotous laughter and audience participation. This is the perfect way to end the summer season!”

The Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum
The Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum — a unique combination of mansion, marine and natural history museum, planetarium and park — is dedicated to the education and enjoyment of the people of Long Island and beyond. This mission is achieved through the thoughtful preservation, interpretation and enhancement of the Eagle’s Nest estate as an informal educational facility. Many exhibition and program themes focus upon Long Island’s Gold Coast Era. Programs also concentrate on William K. Vanderbilt II’s desire that his marine, natural history and ethnographic collections promote appreciation and understanding of the marvelous diversity of life, other cultures, and scientific knowledge. Planetarium programming, more specifically, focuses on scientific knowledge and seeks to capture Mr. Vanderbilt’s sense of adventure and exploration through state-of-the-art entertainment.
