STEUBENVILLE, OH— The Franciscan University Theatre Department will present William Shakespeare’s TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA to audiences this fall.
Two Gentlemen of Verona is about two best friends, Proteus and Valentine. They travel to Milan where they both fall in love with Silvia. Silvia loves Valentine, but Proteus pursues her despite the fact he has a girlfriend at home. The story that unfolds is both comedic and heart-warming to audiences of all ages.
This unique rendition of a classic play is being performed in the original Shakespearean style with the actors only learning their own cue lines and not knowing anyone else’s lines. The actors have not rehearsed together at all which creates a fresh, new performance every night with fun improvisation and engagement with the audience.
Performances will be held September 25, 26, and 27 at 6pm under the big tree outside the J.C. Williams Center and Finnegan Fieldhouse.
Tickets are free! Bring your own lawn chair or blanket, bring some friends, and get ready for a chaotically hilarious night.
