Award-Winning playwright and performer, Terra Taylor Knudson, (2017 Encore Producer’s Award, 2005 Arts Professional of the Year, Long Beach Arts Council), brings her solo show; Willy’s Lil Virgin Queen fresh from the boards of the Santa Monica Playhouse to The Garage Theatre in Long Beach for very special three night engagement September 5th, 6th & 7th at 8:00pm.

Special 2-for-1 tickets are available Thursday night ONLY with Promo Code: “twofer”.

Through Willy’s Lil Virgin Queen, Terra illuminates her personal journey to discover inner strength, triumph over tragedy and find her true power through the words of her truest love; William Shakespeare.

This urgently-paced, hilarious and dark coming-of-age-story dives deeply into the many roles that a woman plays on her road from girlhood to womanhood, and it does not shy away from the darker aspects of finding one’s own purpose in a world that tells girls to shut-up and look pretty.

As was true in the days of the original Virgin Queen; Elizabeth, in a man’s world it takes a woman to rule herself. And in Willy’s Lil Virgin Queen, one woman in particular learns that within the heart of every woman , of every person, there is a queen.

Whether Shakespeare Scholar or Nervous Newbie, Willy is For You!
Think you don’t “get” Shakespeare? “Thee’s” and  “Thou’s” got you down? Never fear! There is something for everyone in this madcap, comic romp about a girl and her Bard. (The rest is just much ado about nothing.)Written & Performed by Terra Taylor Knudson
