Rehearsals will begin immediately Tuesday, June 24. Actors are asked to prepare four lines of Shakespeare for auditions. The show will run mid-August. Exact dates will be announced soon.
“Doing Shakespeare is a departure from what we’ve done so far,” said Nancy Fox, producer, “and few other local theatre companies in Oswego County have done it. It’s a response to interest among local actors who want something they can really challenge themselves with and we’re open to exploring the idea.”
“It’s also a familiar title and who doesn’t know the story? It will be a classic retelling of the tragic love story and a new theater experience for many.”
