14 Sweet Tea Shakespeare is scheduled to perform “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” Jan. 20 until Feb. 5, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, at the Fayetteville Pie Company, starting at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $40 and include a dinner with pie. “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” is a retelling of the classic Jules Verne tale.

Sweet Tea Shakespeare is a theatre and music company based in Fayetteville, Raleigh, the wider North Carolina region, and online. Sweet Tea Shakespeare strives to create simple, elemental, magical performances and to share delight in the wonder of story, song and stagecraft.

Judson Clark, director of marketing and media at Sweet Tea Shakespeare said, “Don’t miss out on Fayetteville’s most innovative theatre event yet! Our talented cast will use their signature wit and charm to bring Jules Verne’s classic tale to life like never before.”

The audience will experience cutting-edge theatre technology that combines immersive sets, a curated menu by Fayetteville Pie Company, and exclusive streaming access. Whether viewers join us in-person or online, “we guarantee you’ll be mesmerised by this thrilling tale of high-seas adventure and epic discovery,” he said.

“20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” tells of Dr. Pierre Aronnax, a professor who leaves New York to investigate reports of an unusual sea monster sighted offshore.

To the surprise of Dr. Aronnax and his companions, the creature turns out to be a submarine, a burgeoning piece of technology at the time of the novel’s publication. When Dr. Aronnax’s ship is destroyed by the submarine, he is taken aboard and meets the brilliant and enigmatic Captain Nemo. Nemo’s creation, named the Nautilus, patrols the world’s waters unbound to any sovereign country, diving to the deepest and most mysterious reaches of the world’s oceans.

Born from Nemo’s desire to resist governmental authority and civilization, the Nautilus is used mainly to conduct research under the sea, as well as to provide a home for Nemo, who wishes to live independently of the world’s countries.

As with other productions, Sweet Tea Shakespeare will add their own unique take on the story that will no doubt entertain audiences. The Fayetteville Pie Company is located in the Westwood Shopping Center.
