THE STORY: Shakespeare's spellbinding play tells the tale of Richard, Duke of Gloucester, one of theatre's most memorable villains, as he gleefully murders his way to the top. Richard is a man with an eye to the crown and a heart of flint who is bent on seizing power, no matter the cost.

Big Idea Theatre's company is elated about our hit third season. We are committed to bringing high quality entertainment to the Sacramento area, and to making the theatre-going experience fun, affordable and accessible for all. Please help us get the word out about our continuing adventure by attending and telling everyone about Richard III. We look forward to seeing you in the house!

$5. PREVIEW performance of RICHARD III at BIT this Thursday, April 8 at 8pm.

Warning: this show is not for children...it's also three hours long. Tell them "Stanley" sent you!
