THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE
The Pirates of Penzance is a preposterous story full of sparkling music and fun (if silly) characters. It is great family entertainment and is suitable for all audiences.

 ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS
One Man, Two Guvnors is a farce containing numerous sexual references and bawdy jokes and some adult language. It may not be suitable for pre-teens and some teenagers.

INTO THE BREECHES!
Into the Breeches is set during World War II and tells a warm story of the women left behind. The play includes very little and very mild adult language and humor and is suitable for almost all audiences.

PERICLES
A story of a man in search of meaning and treasure, Pericles is one of Shakespeare’s lesser-known romances. It includes Shakespeare’s usual sexual puns and innuendo and may not be suitable for pre-teens.  

THE COMEDY OF ERRORS
The Comedy of Errors is one of Shakespeare’s most loved comedies. It includes a host of zany characters, but also Shakespeare’s mild sexual puns and innuendo; however, it is suitable for all audiences. 

RICHARD III
King Richard is one of Shakespeare’s darkest and most sinister characters, murdering everyone who gets in his way to the throne. Thus, although the play is suitable for most audiences, it may not be suitable or enjoyable for pre-teens.

DESPERATE MEASURES
Based on Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, Desperate Measures takes the Bard’s dark plot of sexual blackmail, and adapts it into a light-hearted musical. It includes many sexual jokes and plot devices, and may not be suitable for pre-teens and some teenagers.

CYMBELINE
Cymbeline is a story of heroines and villains, love and treachery and includes plot elements of supposed infidelity and murder. It includes Shakespeare’s usual sexual puns and innuendo but is ultimately is a play of hope and honor. It is suitable for all audiences except some pre-teens.

SHAKESPEARE’S WORST! A PLAY IN A PLAY

Shakespeare’s Worst! A Play in a Play is a tongue-in-cheek production of The Two Gentlemen of Verona with one actor constantly haranguing about the play, his fellow actors, and life in general. As such it does contain some modern adult jokes and language, and may not be suitable for pre-teens.
