ATHENS, W.Va. – “Be not afraid of greatness,” as Shakespeare once said. To see something great, come to the performance of Lot o’ Shakespeare at the Concord University H.C. Paul Theatre on Tuesday Sept. 17, 2019 at 7 p.m. In this energetic and unique presentation, Timothy Mooney will perform different Shakespeare monologues. The theatre is located in the Alexander Fine Arts Center.
Timothy Mooney is the author/adaptor of Breakneck Hamlet and Shakespeare's Histories; Ten Epic Plays at a Breakneck Pace!, new one-man plays which “crack the code” on Shakespeare’s most challenging plays, making them accessible to audiences everywhere. For more than 15 years, Tim has toured nationally, performing Shakespeare, Moliere and other classics.  In his one-man show, Lot o’ Shakespeare, he presents one monologue from every Shakespeare play.  Mr. Mooney continues to present six one-man shows across North America, and recently added a new rhymed version of The Servant of Two Masters to his catalogue. As well as acting himself, he has also helped many actors further pursue their careers.
In addition to his performance at Concord, Tim Mooney will present a workshop on how to perform Shakespeare.  The workshop, entitled Shakespeare Spaghetti, is open to the public as well.  The workshop will be held on Tuesday Sept. 17 at 2 p.m. in the H.C. Paul Theatre.
Admission for both the workshop and the performance of Lot o’ Shakespeare is $5 for the general public.  Concord students, faculty and staff are admitted free. For more information, please contact the Box Office at 304-384-5101. Tickets can be purchased on the night of the event at the Box Office. Concessions will also be sold. (Attendees at this event are asked to please not bring food or drinks into the auditorium.)
