Spring 2016: Shakespeare

Verona's most festive + gender-ambiguous residents

Verona's most festive + gender-ambiguous residents

Currently in the middle of a 6 week run of Romeo & Juliet student matinees at Chesapeake Shakespeare Company. We’ve already performed to over 2,000 students and will perform to over 7,000 by the end of the run. The middle and high school audiences are the best audiences you could ask for. They boo and laugh and applaud when the villains are killed and go crazy when Romeo & Juliet kiss each other. I’m playing the Musician, underscoring the fights with drumming accompaniment and playing music throughout. It’s a ton of fun to be part of such a high-energy production Monday-Friday mornings, and collaborate with such a talented cast. 


On April 25th I’ll be teaming up with Shakespeare in the Pub for a staged reading of Richard II directed by Brave Spirits' Charlene V. Smith. The show will take place at The Pinch in Columbia Heights and will involve lots of drinking and general debauchery, with an all-female cast of DC actors. 

In May I’ll begin rehearsals for two short plays in the Source Festival, INBETWEEN THE DROPS by Elayne Heilveil and Adam’s Temptation by Jack Earl Piland, both directed by Kevin Place and performing in June 2016.

In June I’ll begin rehearsals for PG County Shakespeare in the Parks’ production of Twelfth Night, directed by Christopher Dwyer and touring to parks throughout PG County.
