The Complete Works Of William Shakespeare (Abridged)
By The Reduced Shakespeare Company
Directed By James Calvert

20 May. 05 - 12 Jun. 05

Three enthusiastic actors, one dead playwright, 37 plays and 97 minutes. A sure-fire recipe for theatrical mayhem and unbridled laughter. The Reduced Shakespeare Company’s hit play from the West End was undoubtedly Mellow Drama’s most successful play to date with several extra shows put on to satisfy demand for tickets. Starring Alan Montanaro, Steve Casaletto and John Montanaro the production ran for a tiotal of 14 shows over a four week period at St James Cavalier in Valletta. The play, which covers all of Shakepeare’s works in various and hilarious ways, was directed by James Calvert. We are sure William himself would have approved.

He has also had various roles in musical from Fiddler on the Roof to Anything Goes and, more recently, Company. Alan’s panto characters have earned him the nickname ‘Pantonaro’, and his portrayal of comic arch-villain Captain Hook in Peter Pan is well-loved.

Next up was a small part in HMS Pinafore where he met Pia who introduced him to the world of MADC. Since then John has never looked back, taking part in many one-acts, pantos, musicals and farces at a wide variety of venues. He also enjoyed an entertaining stint as Gabriel in the television series Angli. His recent shows for Mellow Drama include Kissing Sid James, An Evening with Gary Lineker, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), Unoriginal Sin, All the Great Books (abridged) and Gasping. Throughout his acting career, John has always enjoyed making people laugh and that is why he jumped at the chance to be a co-founder of Mellow Drama.
