Past Productions

From the Director's Chair

This isn't one of Shakespeare's most popular plays - indeed, it's not one of his best - but I was sure that we could have a lot of fun with this, and that the audiences would find something enjoyable in it as well.  Rehearsals were often an exercise in experimentation, with everyone contributing ideas and jokes, many of which made it to the final production.  It's at times like that that you feel you're getting close to the spirit of Shakespeare's original company.

This year's production seemed to have its fair share of hurdles to clear - actors getting injured, the generator that powers our lighting going missing, and saturation coverage of Shakespeare in the area!  However, we overcame everything in our way, and our audiences were very positive in their response.  Thanks, everyone, for a memorable year!
