Titus Andronicus

OrangeMite Studios will be performing Titus Andronicus July 18-20th and July 25-27th. All performances will be held at 7PM. If Shakespeare ever came close to writing a horror movie or a thriller, this would be it. Titus Andronicus, The Bard’s first tragedy, is filled with more atrocities than any other Shakespearean play. Revenge is more than a theme or motif in this story; it is the story. Out of this dark and deeply visceral tale, comes a journey into the depths of the human psyche and into the conflicting extremes of humanity. Join OrangeMite for a rare glimpse into the origin of horror and tragedy with its large scale production of Titus Andronicus.

Tickets can be purchased at http://orangemite.com/tickets.html. OrangeMite Studios is a nonprofit community arts organization that has been serving the Dover Area since 2008. For more information check out our website at www.orangemite.org or call 717.814.1151
