DROOD - The Musical
THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD
by Rupert Holmes
Adapted from Unfinished Novel by Charles Dickens

"The SOLVE IT YOURSELF Musical" 

This wildly warm-hearted theatrical experience kicks off when the Music Hall Royale (a hilariously loony Victorian musical troupe) “puts on” its flamboyant rendition of Dickens’ unfinished mystery. The giddy playfulness of this “play-within-a-play” is capped off by YOU choosing the solution to the mystery every night from one of 33 Possible Endings! Never the same show twice because you decide what the unusual, and hilarious, finale will be! 

WINNER of 6 TONY Awards!

 The Rude Mechanicals

From A Midsummer Night’s Dream 
By William Shakespeare

AVAILABLE FOR STUDENT MATINEE PERFORMANCES AT LAKEWOOD PLAYHOUSE 
OR 
WE CAN BRING THE SHOW TO YOU!

The Rude Mechanicals are a group of six tradesmen who want to be and think they are actors...only problem is… they are REALLY bad. They are preparing to perform the lamentable tragedy Pyramus and Thisbe at the Duke's wedding which is a BIG deal. 
  Add the characters of Titania, the Queen of the Fairies, Oberon The King of The Fairies and Puck, Oberon’s mischievous side kick and comedy mayhem ensues!

We will be using actual Shakespearean text but we will also have translator/narrator for the audience.

 It's a PERFECT introduction to Shakespeare.
This is NOT dry, boring Shakespeare that no one can understand...this will be
ALIVE, VIBRANT, UNDERSTANDABLE and HILARIOUS!
 Suitable for Grades K-8.

YOUTH performing for YOUTH!!
 The actors in this production are students of the Lakewood Institute of Theatre.
