FARCE. After poaching a rabbit, young William Shakespeare seeks the help of a witch to escape a mob of angry villagers. The witch finds Will the perfect place to hide…the future. Will suddenly finds himself on the stage of the Avon Little Theater, where he is cast as a frontier sheriff in the theater’s upcoming comedy. However, rehearsals don’t start off well when Will recites his lines with a horrible Texan drawl, and a drama professor proclaims Will a novice actor lacking in his knowledge of Shakespeare. In order to save the show and the theater, Will has to pose as a ghost, deal with a couple of real shrews, and bring together some star-crossed lovers before he can be whisked back to his 1585 home in Stratford-upon-Avon.
