"Opportunities to see comedy of this calibre are all too few and far between." Theatre Alive
"Glenn Elston's production transports its audience on a whirlwind tour through Shakespeare's canon of work -The actors are akin to Laurel and Hardy in their humour, timing and pace they have impeccable comedic presence." Theatre Alive
This summer Glenn Elston's brilliantly funny new adaptation of A Midsummer Night's Dream will have you in stitches! This is sure to make for an enjoyable night out for the holidays as the splendor of Shakespeare Under The Stars comes to life with this inventive comedy.
See here for a short video of 'Shakespeare's Best Bits' when we last performed it in the Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne. Please note, last time the show was called 'Shakespeare's Greatest Hits', the show has since had a facelift, the costumes have had a wash and the name has been changed to a snappy 'Best Bits' to celebrate the 400 years since Shakespeare's death... tad awkward to celebrate that, but any excuse for a good night out suits us! So join us for Shakespeare's Best Bits in the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne!

"With fine comic timing and delivery, hilarious characters, witty dialogue and direct engagement with the delighted audience, the cast of six rollicks through parodies of a parade of Shakespeare's works...You don't need to know all the Bard's plays to enjoy Shakespeare's Best Bits because it a comic romp performed by a talented cast of actors who inject the tragedies with hilarity and stupidity." - Herald Sun
"It's Shakespeare in the Park time again, and if you have never attended this annual iconic event, and you're not much of a Shakespeare fan, then this is the perfect production for you. Glenn Elston has created an extremely funny show. This year the cast is, without exception, quite marvellous, highly experienced and with brilliant comic timing.I defy you not to end up feeling seriously sick from laughing. It's a stroke of genius and should make a reappearance at the MICF" - Stage Whispers
Elston's witty writing makes it a thoroughly enjoyable evening of entertainment just as the Bard would have intended! In short, the show is fast and furiously fun. Nonstop humourous puns and physical enactments still allowed for moments of light and shade comic variance to shine through....if slapstick belly laughs and clever antics are your thing then make sure you don't miss it" - Theatre People
