The complete works of Shakespeare in 97 minutes flat!

Taking a satirical style to performing all 37 plays by William Shakespeare, the Toms River Regional High School South Thespian Troupe received laughter and applause during performances last week at OCL locations in Brick, Toms River and Manchester. They will bring their unique play to the Barnegat Branch on Aug. 13 and the Jackson Branch on Aug. 14. Both shows start promptly at 6:30 p.m.

You might think it would be impossible to perform the complete works of William Shakespeare in 97 minutes but the Toms River Regional High School South Thespian Troupe has made it not only possible, but very entertaining as well.

The Troupe has taken a comedic approach to presenting the Bard’s 37 plays in the tradition of a Shakespearean Elizabethan traveling theatrical company.

They brought their hilarious work to the community by touring OCL locations in Brick, Toms River and Manchester last week.

Their fun continues this week with performances on Wednesday Aug. 13 at the  Barnegat Branch and on Thursday Aug. 14 at the Jackson Branch. The programs will start promptly at 6:30 p.m.

Both OCL locations will feature the talent of three students as they irreverently weave their way through all Shakespeare’s comedies, histories and tragedies in one laugh filled evening for a family program.

These programs are free and open to the public but registration is required. To register call the the Barnegat Branch at 609-698-3331 or the Jackson Branch at 732-928-4400. You can also register by visiting the OCL website www.theoceancountylibrary.org, click on the “Events & News” icon, then click on “Calendar of Events.’’
