WHAT AUDIENCES ARE SAYING ABOUT SWEET TEA SHAKESPEARE
“This is not boring Shakespeare! I have never felt so welcome with a group of people.”
“… easily the best play I’ve ever seen. From the unique costumes, the jokes, the casual welcoming atmosphere, the style of adaptation, to the songs before, between and during the performance…”
“A dedicated, talented, inspiring, loving and devoted group of people!”
“Make time in your busy schedule to catch their work! It’s worth it.”
“…the perfect way to spend a summer evening!”
“Sweet Tea Shakespeare is great for families, and would be a great way to introduce Shakespeare to children in a low-pressure, casual environment.”
“If Shakespeare were to time travel, I think he would be very at home at a Sweet Tea Shakespeare play. I’ve never had a theater experience quite like it; the great humor, rollicking music and consummate acting make each show very memorable. When I’m watching a Sweet Tea Shakespeare show I’m the happiest I’ve been since I moved to Fayetteville.”
“… ”The Tempest”– perfect summer play, excellent cast, vibrant interpretation, lively music, good food, great crowd…”
“Best show every time. You’ll love it. Make plans to attend.”
“Such an amazing experience!! Perfectly executed!!!”
“If you didn’t understand Shakespeare when you were in high school, you’ll love the quality of entertainment, and gain the appreciation for this art form that you couldn’t get just reading it in English class.”

by Jessica Osnoe, Master of Company & Honey, Associate Artistic Director I play a handful of assorted characters in King Lear who range in status from a rebellious servant to the Duke of Burgundy, and of all the scenes and lines, one moment has become a favorite. As a gentleman charged with delivering letters to […]
By Jen Pommerenke, Cut Fellow Desperation is a fantastic and curious catalyst.
