Sh!t-faced Shakespeare

NOW PLAYING!

Location:
The Cabaret at Camp Bar

General Admission: $20
Groups of 10+: $15

*Caution: This is an adult show due to its raucous and completely unpredictable nature.

Fans of Drunk History and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at Sh!t-Faced Shakespeare, which combines an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely inebriated cast member.

For the last six years, Sh!t-Faced Shakespeare has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the U.K., and the cast is finally bringing the good time to the US. Side-splitting, raucous and completely unpredictable, the show is fresh off sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, where cast members drink beer, wine and whiskey on stage, drunkenly sing Pillowtalk and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bare a nipple or two.

Brush up on your Bard knowledge, and head over to Camp Bar for A Midsummer Night’s Dream because this is Shakespeare as you never knew you wanted to see him before.

Please join us for a great night in The Cabaret at Camp. They have a wonderful theater, which we will take full advantage of. We will have a full Heavyweight card, featuring Laurie Lindeen, Danny Klecko, Michael Kleber-Diggs, Sammi Jones, and Barb Jones. Hosted and Curated by Mark Berriman.

Laurie Lindeen is an essayist, professor, mom, author of the memoir “Petal Pusher”, and founding member of the band Zuzu’s Petals. Her latest essay will be featured in the NYT Sunday Review on Aug. 27th.

Klecko can usually be found in the company of bakers, boxers and Russian Supermodels. He also believes there is a 40% chance that he is Ernest Hemingway reincarnated.

Michael Kleber-Diggs is a poet and essayist. He was a Fellow with the Givens Foundation for African-American Literature and a Winner of the Loft Mentor Series in poetry. His work has appeared online, in books and newspapers, in light-rail train cars, on buses, coffee sleeves, and radio stations.

Sammi Jones is the author of “Derby Girl”. She got her start in roller derby in 2010 when she joined the Fargo Moorhead Derby Girls. She holds a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Minnesota State University Moorhead and has written for a variety of publications. She skates for Minneapolis’s North Star Roller Derby.

Barbara Jones is a poet, writer, editor and lawyer, more or less in that order. She was born in St. Paul nearly 64 years ago and lives there still. She gave up prophecy for a while after the November election but has rebounded.

Mark Berriman is an author, a poet and artist, and former Publisher of The Stillwater Gazette. His newest book, “That Turned Ugly Fast”, features a foreword by two time Academy Award nominee, Viggo Mortensen. www.markberriman.com

The performance will transport you back in time into the live studio experience! Full of fun, wit, charm, sass, and grit, the interpretation of a classic younger Barbra is beyond measure!

You will be swept away with the belting voice, style, and banter, and make the leap into Barbra’s world.

Directly from a sold-out one-woman show at Bryant Lake Bowl, Melody as “Barbra” is “like Buttah!”

Love songs follow all of love’s various forms. In this cabaret, you’ll hear songs about the aspects of love that some of us know all too well: wanting to be loved, the excitement of finding someone you might love, falling in love, committing yourself to someone you love, falling out of love, and hating the one you used to love.

Join three of the best cabaret singers in the Twin Cities as they explore the stages of love and discover that the line between love and hate can sometimes be VERY thin.

Featuring Doug Anderson, Kersten Rodau, and Whitney Rhodes in the intimate Cabaret at Camp.

Hedwig and her punk rock band The Angry Inch are traveling to the wicked little town of St. Paul, MN, after a successful three-year encore performance in Duluth, MN. Following the beautifully tragic story of East German-born Hansel Schmidt, this powerful rock musical will speak to those who understand what it’s like to desperately be searching for your other half. Winner of the 2014 Best Show of the Northland and Best Actor and Actress of the Northland by The Reader Magazine, this sold-out show packed the house at The Underground Theatre, located on the shore of Lake Superior. Zenith City Horror is excited to bring this debut production to The Cabaret at Camp Bar and share some of Duluth’s best talent with the metro.
