South Plains College brings ShakesWords to Jones Theatre

LEVELLAND – South Plains College is proud to present "ShakesWords," a unique and exciting production that brings the timeless words of William Shakespeare. It answers the questions about life, death, birth, marriage and all the other facets of the human condition. The show will run from March 2–4 at 7:30 p.m. and at 2 p.m. on March 5 in the Helen DeVitt Jones Theatre on the SPC campus.

Directed by Dr. Daniel Nazworth, department chairperson and professor of Theatre Arts, the production features a talented cast of SPC students including Jacqueline Robinson, Clare Young, Nathan Ashton and Jaden Antu.

When you count all the words that Shakespeare used to create his plays, most scholars believe that the total word count was about 884,647, If you look at words that Shakespeare is credited with the first usage of, that boils down to about 1700.

He also put words into unique combinations like ‘all that glitters is not gold’ and ‘too much of a good thing, our performances will explore these unique words of Shakespeare in a selection of scenes from many different plays. It is a fast-paced, unique way to look at the words of William Shakespeare—all cut into bite-size pieces."

The production of "ShakesWords" is part of the college's commitment to bringing high-quality entertainment to the Levelland community. SPC is proud to continue that tradition with this latest production.
