Fort Worth — The 2014-15 season for Fort Worth's Stolen Shakespeare Guild has been announced. The big change from previous seasons is that there will be three musicals, compared to the one in recent years. There's still Shakespeare, too, with a pairing of Romeo and Juliet and Two Gentlemen of Verona, both of which have that Italian city in common. Also, the Pulitzer series continues and the love of Jane Austen returns.

 

Here's more from the news release, with shows, descriptions and dates:

Welcome to our 2014—2015 Season! We can’t wait to share all of the excitement we have planned for the coming year! This season Stolen Shakespeare Guild is producing 7 great shows.  We begin with the musical The Mystery Of Edwin Drood and by popular demand we are continuing our Jane Austen series.
