Long Beach Shakespeare Company

Long Beach, CA


THE LONG BEACH SHAKESPEARE COMPANY STORY

The Long Beach Shakespeare Company was established in 1990 as the non-profit [501 (c)(3)] theatre arts organization "The-Bard-In-The-Yard." An itinerant company, its goal was to provide free Shakespeare in the parks of Long Beach in the summer. Now an acclaimed company with a resident theatre (since 2002), LBSC's mission is pro-literacy, and our goal is to inspire our audiences with year-round, quality, affordable, traditionally-based performances of classic literature.

Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare

August 26, 2016 8:00 PM - September 17, 2016 8:00 PM

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING August 26th September 17th Probably the inspiration for the Hollywood battle-of-the-sexes, screwball comedies of the 1930s, Shakespeares sparring lovers, Beatrice and Benedick, are charming and quick-witted precursors to the unlikely couples played by Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, or Myrna Loy and Cary Grant. They openly dislike each other at the beginning of the play, and have clever exchanges of one-upmanships, much to the amusement of their friends, who undertake to trick them into a romance. The results are Shakespeare at his most light-hearted and delightful. In contrast, the romance between Hero and Claudio is threatened by genuine grief, created by the contrivance of the dark villain, Don John. The solution lies in the hands of an incompetent and bumbling group of night watchmen. The happiness of both couples depends upon the revelation of the truth, which may or may be discovered before the former best friends, Benedick and Claudio, duel to the death! LBSCs production features live music, dancing, beautiful costumes, and lots of spectacle!

Radio show: Phantom of the Opera

October 14, 2016 8:00 PM - October 16, 2016 2:00 PM

LBSCs Halloween Month celebration of Old Time Radio Horror Classics begins with The Phantom of the Opera. It originally aired on September 13th, 1943, as part of the Lux Radio series, hosted by Cecil B. DeMille. It was based on the 1943 film (which is somewhat different from the 1925 Lon Chaney film and Gaston Lerouxs novel), but instead of using the films star Claude Rains, the radio play featured Basil Rathbone as the Phantom. The movie also paired Nelson Eddy and Susanna Foster as Anatole and Christine, and they returned for the radio version. As a result, there is a lot of music in the production, which will be performed live by our cast, along with all the sound effects! Among the many things for which this version is known is that it introduced what became the standard idea of how the Phantom came to be disfigured.
