Theatre South, a student-led organization at Georgia Southern University, is continuing the tradition of the "student show" by presenting its production of "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)" Thursday through Saturday on Georgia Southern's campus in the Nursing/Chemistry Building Lecture Hall 1207.

The show is a parody of plays written by William Shakespeare, with all of them being performed in a shortened amount of time. The first act is every play except "Hamlet," and the second act is nothing but "Hamlet."

Hilarity ensues as the brave troupe of three actors works its way through Shakespeare's genius. "Othello" is rapped, "Titus Andronicus" is presented as a cooking show, and there's even a football game.

The performance is recommended for ages 14 and older. Tickets are $5 for students and $8 for faculty, staff, and community members. Performance times are 7:30 p.m. today, Friday and Saturday, and doors open at 7 p.m. each day.

This project has been fully supported and funded by Theatre South.
