Classic Chic Productions is founded on the notion that there are great roles in the theatre (both male and female) that appeal to us as actors and human beings. We are creating a forum for women to explore these possibilities.

Pacific Theatre presents the Classic Chic’s production of Corleone: A Shakespearean Godfather. A classic tale of power, destiny, betrayal and honour: what if Shakespeare had written The Godfather? This brilliant comic premise takes on surprising dramatic power as Coppola’s movie masterpiece shows itself to be true Elizabethan tragedy. Performed by Classic Chic’s all-female cast, this mash-up of classic film and classical theatre ultimately charts the dizzying fall of a human soul.
Classic Chic is thrilled and honoured to have the support of Pacific Theatre for this production. Please visit http://pacifictheatre.org/season/2016-2017-season/mainstage/corleone-the-shakespearean-godfather for tickets and information.
