Christmas Fun with Shakespeare, Mice Tails & Music!

A Shakespearean TaleAnother opening, another show! A Shakespearean Tale! is back! FFP’s very first public production back in summer 2012 will revive in December 2014, this time at the Pilot Point Opera House.

A cast of 29 (or so, not counting a few “young’uns”) is ready to take it on, only one of whom was in the first production. Rehearsals are underway and performances are scheduled for December 12, 13, and 14, with 7 pm shows for Friday and Saturday, and a 2 pm matinee on Sunday.

Shakespeare the Dog is back, in all of his stuffed glory, all cleaned up and ready to charm the youngsters. Originally a Costco bear, he was reborn a dog with floppy ears. Abby the artist and costume designer is creative that way. Our version is plenty big enough, but when we walked into Costco last week, there sat a truly massive stuffed bear that stopped almost everyone (including us) in their photo-phone tracks. See the Facebook page for that picture!

Now on Amazon!And now A Shakespearean Tale! has joined the world of ebook and print-on-demand self-publishing. Ebooks are up at Amazon, B&N, Apple and elsewhere. The full-color print book is awaiting the first proof at IngramSpark.

So, come see the show! And get the book for a great Christmas treat and a truly fun way to introduce family members of all ages to Shakespeare, Southern charm, and the power of a few good words!
