Canvas, Stage and More: What's happening in the arts


Hilarious Shakespeare show at The Amp

Apex Theatre Studio, in partnership with The St. Augustine Amphitheatre, will present the fast-paced and hilarious “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged” at 7:30 p.m.  July 15 and 16 on the Backyard Stage at The St. Augustine Amphitheatre.

A small band of madcap performers in Elizabethan dress (and sneakers) weave their way through all 37 of Shakespeare's tragedies, comedies and histories at a breakneck pace. It’s an irreverent rollercoaster ride through all of the Bard's plays. The show originally premiered in London and went on to become its longest running comedy.

The show is under the director of AJ Allegra, artistic director for the NOLA Project in New Orleans. It features a mixture of teaching artists and students from North Florida’s premiere theater training studio.

“This show was a hit in our 2017 season,” said Ian Mairs, managing director. “We wanted to bring it back to our audiences during a time when 90 minutes of nonstop laughter is needed.”

General admission tickets can be purchased at and at the venue box office.
