    East Falls’ historic Old Academy Players presents its 530th production & the Philadelphia Premiere of ShakespeareaPalooza! to open its 100th Season! Written by Old Academy Players member Judith Van Buskirk & directed by Carla Childs, ShakespearaPalooza! is a real Palooza!

    Our cast numbers 29, ranging in age from 8 to 80 -- with 11 more making up the talented production team. There are 15 different scenes from Shakespeare’s plays, all introduced by the character of William Shakespeare himself, who takes part in some of them & presents a few of Shakespeare’s most beloved passages.


    Choreographed group scenes with songs, insults, vocabulary, jokes, a quiz show & a rap add variety. Our tech crew has worked hard to tie it all together with appropriate lighting & sound effects. Here’s hoping you will all join us for an entertaining event!

    The show runs weekends from September 16 – October 2, 2022. Curtain time is 8pm for Friday & Saturday evening shows. Matinées are at 2pm on Sundays.
