The Wichita Falls Alliance for Arts and Culture hosted a weeklong residency of the talented Texas Shakespeare Festival in November 2023.
The company provided free performances to high school students across the Region 9 Service Area. Students enjoyed an hour-long adaptation of Romeo & Juliet, set in contemporary clothing with hints of Elizabethan silhouettes, and an original play called Shakespeare’s Greatest Hits, which presents five of Shakespeare’s most famous scenes along with narration, live music, and audience participation.
A special public performance was presented at Backdoor Theatre of Shakespeare’s Greatest Hits. Audience members experienced five of Shakespeare’s most famous scenes, along with narration, live music, and audience participation.
The Roadshow performs with a Globe Theatre aesthetic, using acoustic instruments to create live music and sound effects from a six-member acting company that plays all parts in the show.
