The Fourth Wall Presents... Breakneck Julius Caesar

Breakneck Julius Caesar

by Timothy Mooney

“Shakespeare as you’ve never seen before!” Award-winning Fringe veteran Tim Mooney turns “Julius Caesar” on its head, thick with passion and hilarity. You’ll roar for mutiny alongside Mark Antony, and understand Julius Caesar as you never imagined, as Mooney makes sense of Shakespeare’s three-hour epic in a wild one-hour romp just in time for the… wait for it… IDES OF MARCH!!

“Illuminates the archaic language for the modern ear… electrifying edutainment.” - Orlando Weekly

“The Shakespeare tragedy has never been so much fun and simultaneously instructive.” - The Pitch

“60 cardiovascular minutes that leave Mooney sweating, and his audience shouting ‘Huzzah!’”  - Orlando Sentinel

Breakneck Julius Caesar is an interactive one-man event, with the audience taking on roles of Senators, Conspirators and The Mob” in the course of the play. It comes to Boston by way of fringe festivals all over North America, winning raves and ovations. The Portland Fringe named it a “Critic’s Choice” and the Orlando Weekly calls it “Electrifying Edutainment” while KC Applauds gave it five stars, declaring it “Well-prepared, focused and magnificent.” Kansas City’s Pitch magazine cheers “The Shakespeare tragedy has never been so much fun and simultaneously instructive. It’s a Fringe go-to.”

Following a brief intermission, Mooney continues to “add by subtraction,” as Shakespeare by Request features an array of thirty-eight monologues, one from each of Shakespeare’s known plays, in response to whichever plays that the audience might want to shout out. In Tim’s interpretations, Shakespeare’s deep profundities ring with poignant irony, wit, sensationalism and a comic playfulness few knew lived in their shadows.

Theatre Mobile presents  "Tall-Tales from Big-Fib"

SHOW 11:30AM/ DOORS 11:00AM

Paul Strickland and Erika Kate MacDonald just got back from visiting their zany Ain't True & Uncle False, who live in Big-Fib Trailer-Park cul-de-sac.  Big-Fib is WAY down south, down there just off the coast of Factual.  Join Erika and Paul as they tell you some of their favorite Tall-Tales, songs and more in this Family Friendly Fun-tastic show!

 

"Strickland and MacDonald do a great job playing with language, making their time on stage seem fun and light and easier for the audience to enjoy the action on stage.  The music and jokes come together to make... something magical."  5 STARS, Edmonton Sun

 

"Both are clearly having a whale of a time rolling out whimsical songs and theatrical tricks for audiences who recognize the warm humanity snuggled in their fibs.  This is the show we need right now; full of the joy that comes from an eye-crossing, ear-tickling, stretched-past-its-limits whopper."  5 STARS, Winnipeg Free Press

Modern Times Theater presents  "The Perils of Mr Punch"

SHOW 11:30AM/ DOORS 11:00AM

“The Perils of Mr. Punch” follows the troubles and travails of puppetry’s favorite loudmouth, Mr. Punch. Nothing ever goes right-- his dog looks suspiciously like a skunk, his baby doesn’t behave, and crocodiles appear around every corner. The skillfully operated hand puppets are chock full of surprises and tricks, as is the elaborate stage. The show is rounded out with live music played on a variety of instruments, from the ukulele to the bicycle pump. It’s a low-tech old-time spectacle, entertaining to people of all ages: from one to one hundred.

Modern Times Theater has been adapting and updating Punch and Judy shows for over a decade. Co-founders Rose Friedman and Justin Lander are a husband and wife duo, producers for Vermont Vaudeville and alumni of the Bread and Puppet Theater. Parents themselves, they strive to present quality entertainment that the whole family can enjoy.

The Fourth Wall Presents... Balls of Yarns

Balls of Yarns

by Paul Strickland

In a strange town where creaky doors sing with you, libraries are separate from “truth-braries” and extraordinary stories are shared through yarn and tin can, an ominous lurking evil threatens to make things normal. Not on Paul Strickland’s watch.

**

“With imagination and heart, Strickland shows us the life-changing magic of seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary.” - The Winnipeg Free Press

“If you are prepared to appreciate “peculiar and unusual beauty” — and why not? — snap up your tickets now.” - 12Night.ca
