Sh!t-faced Shakespeare

NOW PLAYING!

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.

Melody Mendis is “Barbra”

For this intimate revue, Melody is focusing on Barbra’s early career in the 1960s when she garnered a larger audience through her late night shows and TV specials.

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.
