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.

All's Well That Ends Well

May 25, 2018 8:00 PM - June 16, 2018 8:00 PM

Surprisingly, Shakespeare never wrote the words, All is fair in love and war, but he certainly wrote a play that dealt entirely with the subject. Alls Well That Ends Well is what scholars call one of Shakespeares problem plays, neither comedy nor tragedy, but a bit of both. Filled with unrequited love, philandering lovers, deception and disguise, its a story that confuses and elates the audience, and here at LBSC, we think youll love the way we attack it.

Troilus and Cressuda by William Shakespeare

August 24, 2018 8:00 PM - September 15, 2018 8:00 PM

As weve said, this years LBSC productions of Shakespeares rarest plays pays tribute sometimes to the man and not the machine. Troilus and Cressida is probably the most modern of his tragedies and prime material for todays audience. Author and literary scholarJoyce Carol Oates remarked that it strikes the modern reader as a contemporary documentits investigation of numerous infidelities, its criticism of tragic pretensions, above all, its implicit debate between what is essential in human life and what is only existential are themes of the twentieth century.... This is tragedy of a special sortthe tragedy the basis of which is the impossibility of conventional tragedy. Join us, and open your mind to Shakespeares modern ideas.

the Horla & the Hitch-Hiker

October 12, 2018 8:00 PM - October 14, 2018 2:00 PM

Old Time Radio Style Double Feature The Horla and The Hitch-Hiker October 12-14 The Horla The Horla was adapted from a Guy de Maupassant short story for Mystery in the Air, a 1947 radio series of spine-tingling tales showcasing actor Peter Lorre in some of his most intense performances. In The Horla, Lorre played a Frenchman convinced he's being stalked by a malevolent phantom. He fights back fiercely and with fire! But is he saving the world or sacrificing lives to his own personal demons? It's up to listeners to decide if our protagonist has been has driven to madness by the invisible creature or if madness itself is the true menace. The Hitch-Hiker - Few dramas make better use of radios penetrating powers of physiological persuasion than The Hitch-Hiker, by Louise Fletcher, one of old-time radios finest writers. Fletcher takes listeners on an increasingly surreal cross-county road trip in the company of Ronald Adams, who is dogged by a mysterious and seemingly unescapable hitchhiker. The stranger's grim mission is revealed in a shocking denouement. Orson Welles played the lead role in broadcasts on three different radio series between 1941 and 1946, and the drama was adapted for a classic episode of the Twilight Zone aired in 1960.

Frankenstein

October 19, 2018 8:00 PM - October 21, 2018 2:00 PM

Old Time Radio Style - Frankenstein Oct.19-21 Mary Shelly's iconic novel of horror and tragedy was a staple of early radio and film, most notably the 1931 Hollywood classic starring Boris Karloff as Frankenstein's monster. LBSC revisits Frankenstein's earliest radio adaptation, originally broadcast in 1935 on The Witchs Tale, the much loved grandmother of old-time radio horror series. The story opens with the fabrication of the creature, continues as he seeks companionship, and culminates in a showdown between Frankenstein and his angry and forlorn monster. Like Shellys original, our narrative reveals an articulate being who accuses his creator of cruelty and neglect and, ultimately, exacts a terrible revenge.
