STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Some good news: Live theatre is coming back to Staten Island — and after a year of remote educational programs and virtual performances, Sundog will offer live outdoor performances of the comedy, “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged),” and in-person musical theatre kids classes, both beginning, Saturday, June 19. “After performing online and delivering over 100 arts programs online this past year, Sundog is excited to see our audiences and kids again,” says Susan Fenley, Sundog’s executive director. “Nothing compares to the energy and direct communication of live theatre. I believe New York City saw firsthand the lack of in-person arts programs as a major loss. Bring on the openings.”
“The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged),” written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield, opens June 19 at the historic Biddle House, 70 Satterlee Street, on the ground of the Conference House in Tottenville.
