Video preview: Student-directed play offers hilarious take on Shakespeare

UW-Green Bay senior Ashley Wisneski is no stranger to the theatre. As a longtime actor with UW-Green Bay Theatre and Dance, she has appeared in numerous productions in a variety of roles. Now Wisneski is taking on a new challenge, directing a full-length studio production that opens Thursday (Feb. 5). The Complete Works of Shakespeare (abridged) [revised] is a funny, frenetic take on all 37 of the Bard’s plays, portrayed in hilarious fashion in the span of about two hours. We caught up with Wisneski a week or two back, chatting with her about the experience and taking some video of a gut-bustingly funny rehearsal. Check out the video, and then check out her show — 7:30 p.m. Feb. 5-7 in University Theatre. Admission is free, but get there early — due to the interactive nature of the show (yep, you read that right), seating is limited to 75 people per night.
