NSU’s Sequoyah Institute presents “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)” – Oct. 11

(Tahlequah, Oklahoma) - Northeastern State University will present “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged),” a performance by The Reduced Shakespeare Company, at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 11 at the NSU Center for the Performing Arts. The performance is part of the 2018-2019 Sequoyah Institute Performing Arts Series.

“The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)” is an irreverent, fast-paced romp through the bard’s 37 plays. For 97 minutes, viewers will join these madcap men in tights as they weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s comedies, histories and tragedies in one wild and memorable ride that leaves audiences breathless and helpless with laughter.

“I think our patrons will be impressed with the skills that this professional company brings to the stage,” Assistant Dean of the College of Liberal Arts Dr. Robyn Pursley said. “The play itself is a great piece, but having The Reduced Shakespeare Company performing it is a really wonderful treat. The show is definitely an evening of comedy that anyone can enjoy, not just those who love Shakespeare. If you like physical comedy and witty dialogue, then you will enjoy this show.”

Tickets for the performance may be purchased online at, by phone at 918-444-4500 or in person weekdays 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Sequoyah Institute Box Office, now conveniently located at 300 N. Muskogee Ave., at the NSU Playhouse. Tickets will also be available at the Center for the Performing Arts Box Office beginning one hour before show time.

Individual performance tickets, season tickets and group discounts are available. As always, tickets are free for NSU students with a current ID. Special ticket pricing is also available for NSU faculty, staff and alumni.

The Sequoyah Institute Performing Arts Series is funded in part by a grant from the Oklahoma Arts Council. The Sequoyah Institute can be reached by phone at 918-444-4500.
