Audition details...
Shakespeare on the Plaza: Merry Wives of Windor & As You Like It
Audition times:
Saturday, November 4, 2017 12-4pm
Sunday, November 5, 2017 5-9pm
Synopsis:

The shows play Civic Plaza June 8-July 1, 2018. This year, our two plays are going to share a world: the dynamic, revolutionary and tumultuous 1960s. A world like Shakespeare's and our own. The music, ethos and passion of the time will inform both shows, and we hope to have some cross-over fun between the productions. More information forthcoming.

The Merry Wives of Windsor
The lecherous Falstaff attempts to seduce married women, who see through him but lead him on in order to turn the tables on him.

About the Director.
Dennis Elkins directed last year's highly successful Comedy of Errors. He has been an acclaimed actor, director and professor of theatre for many years. Most recently as Artistic Director and chair of the theatre department at Ft. Lewis College. He has directed Shakespeare many times, and also acted with the Colorado Shakespeare Festival. We are delighted to have him back this year.


As You Like It
Sibling rivalries, exiled lords, lovers in disguise, and some of Shakespeare's most well-known speeches end in reconcilliation and marriage.

About the Director. We are pleased to bring Brendan McCall to Albuquerque and SOP. Brendan trained at NYU (BFA) and Bennington (MFA), has taught at the Yale School of Drama, the New School of Drama, New York University, and Working Classroom here in Albuquerque. He has directed in over 40 countries on 5 continents. He recently directed the movement-theater concept album "Visions of Kerouac" (Norway) and "Swift Justice" (USA), and will direct Aaron Landsman's site-specific "Open House" this autumn (Norway + Morocco).

Shakespeare on the Plaza is a co-production of The Vortex and the City of Albuquerque, whose support we gratefully acknowledge.
