2018 Season Announcement! 

Shakespeare’s Other Women 
By Scott Kaiser, Director TBA 

We are thrilled to announce our first indoor production to be staged in January at WICA’s Zech Hall, and we are honored to be one of the first to produce Scott Kaiser’s Shakespeare’s Other Women. Mr. Kaiser, director of Company Development at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, has written and adapted numerous plays, and has directed professionally and academically around the country. As Mr. Kaiser stated, this play “began as an attempt to provide young actresses with fresh possibilities when seeking a Shakespeare monologue to showcase their talents. To accomplish this, I scoured the canon and asked: what are the great speeches that Shakespeare might have written, but didn’t? Then, I set out to write them myself...” 

Summer 2018

Sense and Sensibility
Adapted by Kate Hammil (rights pending), based on the book by Jane Austen, Directed by Charlie McGrath

Charlie McGrath, hailing from Washington, D.C., where she most recently worked as a directing fellow for Shakespeare Theatre Company, D.C., will direct Kate Hammils swift and sweeping adaptation of this Jane Austen favorite. Our outdoor setting will serve the text beautifully with energy and vivacity.  

Othello
By William Shakespeare, Directed by Corey D. McDaniel

Corey McDaniel (Director: Julius Caesar, 2016) will return to direct Othello. Our production will examine the security we find in confinement and discomfort in disrupting the status quo. Mr. McDaniel is the Producing Artistic Director of Seattle’s Theatre22 and we are elated to invite him back in 2018.

Twelfth Night
By William Shakespeare, Directed by Kristin Clippard

Cincinatti based director Kristin Clippard will join us to direct the melancholy masterpiece that is Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. This story will be ensemble based with our stage clean, elegant and simple, loosely based in the late 19th century’s world of gender bias and strict social etiquette. This play is about revelry, grief, loyalty, gender roles, and raw emotion. No revelry is complete without music, and that will play a key part in this show.
