With your help, in 2013 the Flatwater Shakespeare Company accomplished so much!

Much Ado About Nothing, directed by Becky Key Boesen, was set in the 1980s, staged at the Lincoln Community Foundation Garden, and went on our most successful tour of city parks to date.

A collaborative project with The Haymarket Theatre, a youth production of Much Ado, directed by Maggie Austin, brought dozens of young people into direct contact with Shakespeare's language and stagecraft.

In cooperation with the Ross Media Arts Center, Flatwater Shakespeare presented a panel discussion, including Union College professor Tanya Cochran, about Joss Whedon's film version of Much Ado.

Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot, a 20th-century masterwork, was directed by Bob Hall and featured Crooked Codpiece Company co-founders Patrick Lambrecht and Tom Crew, along with Flatwater veterans Richard Nielsen and Andy Dillehay.

Many thanks for your past support --

And just imagine what Flatwater Shakespeare might accomplish in 2014.

Do come see Marley and Me, A One Man Christmas Carol, written and directed by Bob Rook and performed by Flatwater Shakespeare Artistic Director Bob Hall, at The TADA Theatre -- in the Creamery Building in the Haymarket, second floor above Ivanna Cone. 

From Bob: "I'm guessing it's the only one man show I'm ever likely to do, so I hope you'll get it on your calendar sometime in the next two weekends. I'm prejudiced being the only actor up there playing 11 parts but I'm sure you'll have a great time for an hour and fifteen minutes seeing something that's funny, dramatic, goofy, moving, and certainly unique. Call TADA for tickets and you can also find out how to reserve Haymarket Parking for $5 even on Arena event nights. This is our Christmas Card to Lincoln so please, don't miss it. And by all means bring the kids!"

The run continues December 5-8 and 12-15, with Thursday-Friday shows at 7:30p and Sunday shows at 2p.  TADA Theatre, Creamery Building, 7th and P Streets.
