CAST's sixth season will continue with "Shakespeare On Love", a program of scenes featuring some of the plays' most famous and infamous couples, to celebrate Valentine's Day. Performances are February 14, 15, & 16 at Spiran Hall, Broadway and School Street, Rockport.
Scenes have been selected from "The Tempest", "Much Ado About Nothing", "The Winter's Tale", "Troilus and Cressida", "Twelfth Night", and "Macbeth". Also included is "Muse of Fire" by Joseph Stiliano, a short comedy based on Shakespeare's purported relationship with the supposed dark lady of the sonnets. The title is taken from the prologue to "Henry V", the content of the piece from conjecture, supposition and a few facts. The play was read last summer as part of a ten-minute play festival, organized and guided by M. Lynda Robinson for the Gloucester Writers' Center.
In April, CAST will be celebrating the 450th with its annual tribute and birthday party with traditional English cake and pastries. More to come about that.
We will soon be casting our May production, "The Merry Wives of Windsor" featuring Ray Jenness reprising the role of Falstaff, the rollicking, boisterous knight errant brought back by Shakespeare, supposedly at the request of Queen Elizabeth I. Anyone wishing to be considered for a role, should contact director Joseph Stiliano at email@example.com .
