SEASON SNEAK PEEK BY THE NUMBERS

We’re excited to share a season of dozens of performances and 15 separate productions of plays, hours, LIT tour offerings, and more.

Sweet Tea Shakespeare Plays provide an interactive play-going experience with live music prior to every show. Most shows feature an array of snacking and drinking options, some of which may constitute a light meal. This season’s offerings include SIX plays, including FOUR in Fayetteville and TWO in Raleigh. That’s right, we’re expanding to the Raleigh market.

Here’s a very exciting sneak peek: following 2018’s rousing run of Sweeney Todd, we’re headed back to Fayetteville Pie Company for a classic show that will knock your socks off.

Sweet Tea Shakespeare Hours are an expanded version of STS’s famous preshow with a kick: an intimate, variety show with live music, original writing, guest artists, thought-provoking reflections, and to meet the overwhelming demand of our audience for more of our hallmark preshow fun. STS hours are a community gathering of story, song, and craft, featuring local beer, quality wine, a signature cocktail, and light meal options. (PG13 due to some adult language and alcohol consumption.)

LIT Performances are for adults, as they blend stripped-down Shakespeare plays with improv, games, and a relaxed, pub-like environment. Underage guests and anyone showing visible signs of intoxication will not be served. We maintain a friendly environment, so no verbal or physical rudeness will not be tolerated. This season’s offerings include our classic HamLIT plus four new titles.

Other Events are also offered throughout the year, including Green Tea youth company performances and our annual Christmas gospel concert, BEHOLD.

If you think all this sounds amazing, go ahead and score your season tickets today!

Love on the Brain

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and here at Sweet Tea Shakespeare, we have love on the brain! Cupid’s little arrows are flying and our upcoming production of Midsummer Night’s Dream features a little “cupid” of its own. Puck, also known as Robin Goodfellow, functions as the bringer of love in this whimsical Shakespeare comedy. Let’s look at a few things the god of love and the mischievous fairy have in common.

While Cupid has not always been portrayed as the cherub with the bow and arrows that now comes to mind, he and Puck can both be portrayed as childlike, working to aid couples in falling in love. Cupid works his will be shooting a magical arrow to cause those hit to fall in love. Similarly, Puck puts juice of a magical flower on the lovers’ eyes to manipulate the potential romances. Of course, when feelings are magically manipulated, chaos and hilarity ensue!

Join us for the comedic misadventures of Puck, this little bringer of love. Sweet Tea Shakespeare’s production of Midsummer Night’s Dream opens April 23rd. Don’t miss the fun! Get your tickets here!
