About Us

Bard & Bourbon is dedicated to performing beautiful, fully staged productions of classical works with a touch of irreverence.  Each production features small non-traditional casts playing multiple parts while getting one actor very drunk over the course of the show.

Bard & Bourbon strongly encourages responsible drinking! Our actors get drunk on a rotating schedule to ensure time to recover, have the rest of the cast watching out for them, and NEVER drive afterwards.  If you are planning on drinking with us, please take similar steps to ensure a safe and fun night of indulgence.
