2004 Shakespeare Santa Cruz 23rd Season
Special Group Invitation for Staff & Faculty & Families
July 30 @ 8 p.m. in the Festival Glen The
Taming of the Shrew, by William Shakespeare. Directed by Tim Ocel
One of Shakespeare's most popular comedies, is also one of his most surprising.
Its sexual politics may appear antediluvian, but somehow Kate and Petruchio
come across as the most levelheaded lovers in Shakespeare. It's twelve years
since Danny Scheie's production delighted audiences in the Glen.
August 6 at 8 p.m., Festival Glen, The
Tamer Tamed, by John Fletcher. Directed by Danny Scheie.
Fletcher (Shakespeare's contemporary) knew a hit when he saw one so he borrowed
Shakespeare's story and turned it on its head. In The Tamer Tamed (1611)
Petruchio, now ten years older and a widower, marries Maria. And she--to quote
the ad--thinks different. All the men in the play (and the audience) are in
for a surprise. The battle of the sexes, Round Two.
August 13 at 8 p.m., Theater Arts Mainstage, Who's
Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, by Edward Albee. Directed by Michael
Round Three: one of the greatest American plays of the twentieth century
Albee's black comedy Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Along with
Nick and Honey, you are invited to George and Martha's toxic after-dinner
party in the Performing Arts Mainstage.
Playgoers are encouraged to bring blankets, cushions, or low-back and short
legged beach chairs for use in the Festival Glen. A limited number of beach
chairs are available for rent for $2 each. Green Chairs (reserved for donors
and subscribers) unreserved seats will be made available @ $2 each. The Festival
Glen opens one hour before the play begins. Bundle up for the evening performances.
You are welcome to bring a picnic or a food concession is also available.
