ShoeString Productions is one of the Community Partners of the Kentucky Shakespeare Festival's 2014 Summer Season. Join us for our production of Women of Will, a compilation of scenes and monologues of Shakespeare's women characters; from comedies to tragedies, enjoy these women's wit and passion.
Kathi E.B. Ellis directs four women guest artists in this intricately woven series of encounters between these characters. Kristi Papailler, who has participated in several of ShoeString Productions' staged readings is joined by Meg Caudill, Chelsea Skalski and Karole Spangler.
Performances of Women of Will are August 12, 14, and 16 in Central Park at 8pm. All performances are free—'free will' donations accepted.
In June 2010, ShoeString Productions partnered with the Louisville Visual Art Association to produce Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie. It coincided with the 2010 National Glass Art Conference which took place in Louisville in June, 2010. This first-produced Williams' play was staged at the historic Water Tower.
