Project X Theatre Returns with X Fest 2015!

X Fest 2015 is happening July 13th – August 1st in Prince Charles Park, featuring The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood and The Shakespeare Show.

the Merry Adventures of Robin Hood

written by Jeff Pitcher

This lively adaptation about the infamous outlaw who steals from the rich to give to the poor will see Prince Charles Park transform into the heart of Sherwood Forest.  The nasty Sherriff of Nottingham is at it again, taking anything and everything he pleases and it’s Robin and his band of merry men to the rescue.  A fun and fast paced story about the pursuit of justice for all, with enough laughter and merriment, archery and sword fighting to delight both the young and the young at heart.

100 minutes, plus intermission | See the schedule

the Shakespeare Show,

or: how an illiterate son of a Glover became the Greatest Playwright in the World

written by Ryan Gladstone

A delightful romp for both the Shakespeare novice and aficionado alike, this hilarious play is born from the greatest theatrical academic debate of all time – who was William Shakespeare and did he REALLY write all those plays? The Shakespeare Showtakes an irreverent look at the number one candidate -­‐ The Earl of Oxford.  Just like one of his own tragic heroes, Oxford sets his own tragedy in motion by using Shakespeare, the boy who holds the horses outside the theatre, as a ‘front’ for his playwriting ventures. The result?  A “relentlessly clever, action-­‐packed and intellectually satisfying” adventure complete with puppets, songs, satire and swordfights!

80 minutes, plus intermission | See the schedule
