ShakesParody After Dark features a raucous and wily take on all things Shakespearean. Austin Scottish Rite Theater hosts Tallahassee Florida’s The Mickee Faust Club for six fun-filled evenings of cabaret-style Shakespeare-inspired comedy. Devised and directed by Esthers Follies founding member Terry Galloway and her long time Faustian collaborators, Donna Marie Nudd and Jimmers Micallef.

The skits and music for ShakesParody were written or adapted by members of Tallahassee's Mickee Faust Club. Now Austin Scottish Rite Theater joins Faust in bringing together performers with and without disabilities who share a sense of humor and a penchant for Shakespeare. From a hilariously expletive-filled take on Hamlet to the plaintive musing of the soon-to-be extinct Shakespearosaurus, there’s fun to be found by those who love Shakespeare--and those who just love a fun night of comedy.

Bawdy Shakespeare warning! No one under 18 admitted without a parent or legal guardian.

All performances will be open captioned.
