An earnest group of players from Natchitoches created an ode to the bard 4 seasons ago in order to fulfill their studies at NSU. To the credit of creators James Palmer and John Chambers and choreographer Wanetah Walmsley, the show - Big Willie Style - has subsequently been produced annually.

This year the Gilbert & Sullivan Society of North Louisiana has chosen to present the hip-hop Shakespeare production at Marjorie Lyons Playhouse, Centenary College.

John Chambers says of Big Willie Style, " We believe that it is something fresh and something that Shreveport has never seen before. It is a true 100% Hip Hop show with 100% Shakespeare. A blend of the bards best with some of the finest in Hip Hop and of course some fly dancing."
