The Lost Folio: Shakespeare's Musicals
Un-Scripted Theater Company's new season begins with the reimagining of our classic Shakespeare: the Musical as The Lost Folio: Shakespeare's Musicals -- a fully improvised, full-length musical that Shakespeare himself could have written. This production will explore the language, characters, and themes that make Shakespeare the most beloved playwright in history. The addition of song gives the characters another form of emotional expression well-suited to the passions found throughout Shakespeare's work.
Gold Rush! The Un-Scripted Barbary Coast Musical

Gambling. Prostitution. Crime. Sudden riches...and sudden death. This sum
