2005 Shakespeare Santa Cruz 24th Season
Special Group Invitation for Staff & Faculty
August 5 at 8 p.m., Theater Arts Mainstage Engaged,
by W. S. Gilbert. Directed by Paul Whitworth
When the Glasgow to London train is derailed on the Scottish borders (to
capture the tourist trade), it contains an extraordinary gallery of magnetic
characters caught between the competing attractions of sex and money. Satirizing
the rampant materialism and hypocrisy that characterized Britains turn
as the worlds only superpower in the 1870s, Gilberts topsy-turvy
world is the direct forbear of the comic lineage of Oscar Wilde, George Bernard
Shaw, and Tom Stoppard.
August 6 at 8 p.m., Festival Glen, Twelfth
Night, by William Shakespeare. Directed by P. J. Paparelli.
The quintessential Shakespearean comedy, Twelfth Night has it all: twins separated in a shipwreck, an impossible love-triangle, practical jokes involving yellow stockings and a heroine who suffers from a kind of Truth Tourettes. Shipwrecked on the coast of Illyria, and fearing that her brother Sebastian has drowned, Viola must disguise herself as a man. She falls in love with the neighboring Duke Orsino who loves the Lady Olivia who loves the disguised Viola. What could possibly go wrong?
August 12 at 8 p.m., Festival Glen, The
Winter's Tale, by William Shakespeare. Directed by Tim Ocel.
Leontes suspects that his pregnant wife, Hermione, is having an affair with
his best friend, Polixenes of Bohemia. Leontes tyrannical jealousy destroys
his family: his newborn baby is abandoned on a distant shore, his son and
heir dies of grief, and then he learns that Hermione has died in prison. Until
what has been lost is found, Leontes must do penance for his crimes
of jealousy. Meanwhile far, far away, in the spring-time, two simple shepherds
find a beautiful newborn baby girl
Time will reveal all in this most
surprising and poetic of Shakespeares late plays.
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
