The Jedi Doth Return, the third installment of Southern Shakespeare’s Bard Wars series, is coming to Proof Brewing Co. in Railroad Square on December 16th from 6 pm to 9 pm. It’s a celebration leading to the opening of the seventh episode of the Star Wars ennealogy (a word worthy of Shakespeare).
Credit Ian Doescher with the brilliant idea of retelling the Star Wars stories in verse worthy of the Bard, thereby combining TWO of the Top Ten List of Obsessions on wemadethisup.com. Not that we’re biased, but you really haven’t lived until you’ve heard Darth Vader say to Luke, “If thou wilt not fight, then thou shalt meet thy destiny.”
While we are on the subject of Top Ten lists, did we mention BEER? The brews at Proof are as nuanced as a Hamlet soliloquy, or as brash as an untamed shrew. Remember the bar in the first Star Wars movie, A New Hope? There won’t be as many aliens, but mixing Shakespeare aficionados with Star Wars devotees COULD be a multicultural experience!
There will be Southern Shakesbeer Growlers available with discount coupons on refills. You can become a member of the Southern Shakespeare Company with the corresponding benefits of reserved seating for our Festival in April and other perks. Ask about our Education and Community Outreach programs. Maybe you’d like to learn more about The Bardlings, our junior company of middle and high school students learning and performing Shakespeare all over Tallahassee.
Find out about our Shakespeare Uncorked Wine Festival in January. You could book a production of our touring show, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) for your civic organization, or where you can see this hilarious play in venues around the Big Bend.
So come on down to Proof at 644 McDonnell Dr. in Railroad Square on Dec. 16. Your growler and other merchandise purchases will benefit the Southern Shakespeare Company, so you get to indulge in any number of your guiltiest pleasures for a good cause.
