“A Fool For Love” – A Unique Interactive Shakespeare Experience
Carlo Thomas is proud to present: “The Red Rose Parlour Theatre,” with an extended run of five shows, February 7th, 8th and 9th at the Manatee Performing Arts Center, home of the Manatee Players. In our modern culture, Shakespeare is often associated with a long, boring evening and a nap. Shakespeare in the round, however, is a completely different experience. “A Fool For Love” is true Shakespeare, performed in the round,* is rousing, ribald and as interactive as each audience participant desires.
(*In the Round – theatre space in which the audience surrounds the stage area)
Actors Raphael Petlock and Lauren Wood guide us through Shakespeare’s favorite love comedies without sparing us the tragedies. Relive the classics from the inside-out. Much more than a distant drama on stage, the audience is invited into the show, to communicate in the original English language and perhaps even participate!
Producer Carlo Thomas is an International Vocalist, Vocal Technician and Producer. He has worked with Hugh Martin (Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas) and Timothy Gray and is recommended by famed Broadway Producer and Director Hal Prince.
The new Manatee Performing Arts Center is a complex of performance spaces. The 80-seat Bradenton Kiwanis Theater, located at 502 3rd Avenue West, is an open space area and the perfect venue for a rousing crowd in the round.
Enjoy music, singing, dancing and an interactive invitation into the heart of Shakespeare’s infamous love stories that are right on time for Valentine’s Day. Come be a ‘FOOL FOR LOVE!’
