The Louisiana School for Math, Science and the Arts presented The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged) at the school’s Black Box Theater April 19-22. The production, with tongue firmly in cheek, dealt with the complete canon, from Henry VI through The Two Noble Kinsmen in a somewhat… abbreviated… fashion. One of the highlights of the play was their treatment of Othello, summarized in a rap complete with a Public Enemyesque touch.
The talented students of the LSMSA Theater Department put on two productions each year. They are quite well done and belie the young ages of the actors and backstage crew. The Natchitoches Parish Journal congratulates the cast and crew on a successful run and is looking forward to their next event.
