When the two gents, Valentine and Proteus, leave Verona to seek their fortunes in Milan, their boyhood friendship turns to rivalry when they both fall in love with the Duke's daughter, Sylvia--even though she is promised to a rich suitor and Proteus is already engaged to his hometown sweetheart, Julia. Proteus sets out to betray both friend and fiance, only to find that Julia and Sylvia have a thing or two to teach him about loyalty and love. One quick-witted (and one not-so-quick-witted) servant, some bawdy outlaws, and a faithful canine companion make this one of Shakespeare's most lighthearted romantic comedies.

Fabulous Presto is a quirky variety show of puppet acts for adults, mixing humans with objects and old-fashioned spectacle with high-end tricks. Creatures emerge out of packing material in one act -- a puppet undergoes cosmetic surgery in another. At turns humorous, uncanny and weird this is an original production where anything goes and every THING wants to come out to play.
*Note: This production is inappropriate for children under 12
