The showcase features two plays that the five-member student troupe has been rehearsing since August and will tour through spring 2015. Shiver Me Timbers: A Pirate Play, by Gay Hammond, is a collection of adventurous, humorous and romantic tales featuring a group of playful pirates. The material is suitable for all ages. At 9 p.m. the group will perform A Muse of Fire, a variety of famous scenes from Shakespeare including As You Like It, Hamlet, and Henry IV.
