The Bard's Broads
Dinner Show. August 8-30.

followed by
The Bard is a Broad
Dinner Show. September 5-27.

by Anthony Lawson
TheatreNOW transforms to The Dirty Quill, a favorite stomping ground and local pub of a young Will Shakespeare. It is there that he's influenced by the "ladies" of the tavern. Eat, drink and be merry at this interactive and bawdy comedy and dine on an Elizabethan inspired 3-course meal. The Bard is a Broad, a sequel of sorts to The Bard's Broads, finds young Will back at The Dirty Quill and enchanted by Victor/Viola. Boys in dresses, girls dressed as boys dressed as girls---just another day to "Get Your Thrill at the The Dirty Quill!"

Tickets $32 adults. $18 for show only Not recommended for children. Parental discretion highly recommended. Beverages and food service gratuity not included.

TheatreNOW is pleased to once again present Celia Rivenbark’s “Rude Bitches Make Me Tired: slightly profane and entirely logical answers to modern etiquette dilemmas.” Adapted from Rivenbark’s book of the same title by TheatreNOW Artistic Director Zach Hanner, this show takes you through how to cope with stingy check splitters, rude airline passengers, the odd dinner party faux pas, line jumpers and much, much more.

Starring: Belinda Keller, Melissa Stanley, Kathy Rudeseal and Jordan Mullaney
