William Shakespeare wrote more than three dozen plays and seeing them all would take you more than a week, if you allowed for some sleep.

But next week, you can see all of Shakespeare’s drama in just 90 minutes thanks to the Verona High School’s Spotlight Players. They will present the hilarious The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) on November 14, 15 and 16 at 7:30 p.m. in the VHS auditorium.

Is the drama driving Jillian Lanese crazy?

The play, written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield, was originally intended for three actors, but the Players’ director, Fran Young, has adapted the play for a cast of 23 students. The cast includes Gabe Riccitelli, Tabitha Chasse, Jill Lanese, Maddie Meyer, Kelsey Mitchell, Noelle Park, Colin Pope, Austin Williams, Kelsey Dougherty, Katie Kast, Chloe Christen, Rayna Newkirk, Carina Mitchell, Kayla Drozdowski, Rachel Held, Abby Pope, Joe Anello, Nick Kast, Chris Meyer, Mia Corbett, Katie Fernandez, Anna Shea, and Carla Bello. The stage manager is Miranda Williams.

Tickets can be purchased at the door. Adults are $10, and students and senior citizens are $8. Thursday, November 14 will be student night and tickets will be $5.

With Kelsey Dougherty, Madeline Meyer and Gabe Riccitelli perhaps?
