ENT_LoveLabour

SACRAMENTO – Big Idea Theatre rocks its final show of the 2012 season with the opening of a funky and festive adaptation of William Shakespeare’s “Love’s Labour’s Lost,” opening Friday, Nov. 16.

The Kings of Navarre, a group of dissolute rockers, vow to change their ways, swearing off booze, drugs and women for a full year. But just after they utter their oaths of celibacy and sobriety, they are besieged by a bevy of beautiful and talented women. Wild antics ensue as the men attempt to win the hearts and hands of the women they love.

Elly award-winning director Michael RJ Campbell’s hip cast includes Big Idea Company members Kirk Blackinton (who adapted this show), Scott Divine, Beth Edwards, and Wade Lucas. The cast is completed by Kristine David, Renee DeGarmo, Dan Featherston, Ryan Snyder and many more fine actors.

“Love’s Labour’s Lost” runs from Nov. 16 to Dec. 8 at Big Idea Theatre: 1616 Del Paso Blvd., Sacramento. Showtimes are 8 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday; 2:30 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $15 general admission, $13 SARTA/senior/student and $10 on “Thrifty Thursday” (Nov. 18 and 25). For tickets and more information call the box office at (916) 960-3036 or visit bigideatheatre.com.
