Richard III and Twelfth Night are coming soon!


“Now is the winter of our discontent, made glorious summer by this son of York…”

RICHARD III, one of Shakespeare’s favorite villains and bloodiest histories will be performed July 17, 19, 22 & 24, with preview performance on July 15. Richard III will be directed by LST ensemble member Scott Cummins (director of LST’s Hamlet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Comedy of Errors) and will feature LST ensemble member Jeff Christian in the title role.

“If music be the food of love, play on, give me excess of it; that surfeiting, the appetite may sicken, and so die…”

TWELFTH NIGHT, Shakespeare’s zany comedy of shipwrecks, disguises, love, laughter, and yellow stockings will be performed July 18, 20, 23 & 25, with a preview performance on July 16. Twelfth Night will be directed by LST ensemble Matt Kahler and will feature LST Managing Director Sara Gorsky as Viola.

All performances will be at Tank Hill in Frankfort, MI, at 7pm. As always our performances are FREE and for all ages.
