SOS Troupe
enters second season

Ryan Geraghty in SOS’s 'Richard III' by William Shakespeare

SOS (Shakespeare-On-a-Shoestring) was formed in 2012 when Department of Theatre and Dance productions were threatened by financial cuts.

Professor Bella Merlin then originated SOS to create more acting opportunities for dramatic art students.

The SOS mission is to create immediate drama that stirs, delights and entertains through the Bard’s classic works. In the manner of Shakespeare’s ‘rough magic,’ sets and costumes are at a minimum with maximum drama and audience engagement.

SOS’s premier production was Richard III in 2013. This season, SOS presents The Merchant of Venice which opens March 14, 2014.
