Richard, a high school student with cerebral palsy, is determined to become class president and to get Anne Margaret, the popular girl, to ask him to the Sadie Hawkins dance. Mike Lew's contemporary high school gloss on Shakespeare's Richard III is directed by Brian Balcom and features a cast of actors with and without disabilities. A dozen wheelchair-accessible seats will be reserved for each performance. Contact the theater for information on other accessible performances and services. The company will also offer tickets for livestreaming of the show, beginning 3/20, for patrons who are unable to attend in person, particularly since Theater Wit has reconfigured the seating for fewer audience members in light of the COVID-19 concerns. For information on how to livestream performances, contact the box office.

Price: $28 for remote viewing
