When we found out we would be acting together this summer, we were both very shocked, excited, and slightly confused. This was not Comedy of Errors or Twelfth Night, and pondering our potential relationship in the same show was as stressful as the auditioning process. However, when we received word that we would be playing mother and daughter (Mistress Page and Anne Page), those stresses were calmed and aside from thoughts of the Film “Chinatown,” we were content with finally being able to take the stage together.
This 15th season is also the 150th anniversary of the first Shakespeare play ever performed at the University and the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth. We look forward commemorating this momentous convergence of events with the following:
ShakeScenes | July 19 & 20, 2014
Young Company | The Merry Wives of Windsor | July & August, 2014
Professional Company | Henry IV | August 19–31, 2014
Actors From The London Stage | Much Ado About Nothing | September 17–19, 2014
Explore the power and imagination of Shakespeare’s works, and celebrate a century and a half of the playwright’s influence here at Notre Dame. Join us for the 15th anniversary season of the Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival.
