GreenStage Announces 25th Anniversary Season!
Our annual Shakespeare in the Park offerings will be KING LEAR, to be directed by Artistic Director Erin Day, and A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM directed by Ken Michels. Both shows run from July 12 though August 17, 2013, in parks in and around Seattle.
A sonnet for your sweetie!
Valentine's day is upon us, and GreenStage and our partners in love, Sound Theatre Company, again are offering a Valentine service your beloved will never forget: one of the Bard's immortal love sonnets delivered by a professional actor in full Shakespearan costume!
Go visit www.ValentineSonnets.com now to learn more and sign up! We love Valentine's Day so much we're celebrating for a whole week! Actors are standing by ready to deliver a sonnet to your special someone most any time between Feb. 9 and Feb. 16.
Actors are practicing now on sonnets 18 and 116, but they're quick studies and--for a little extra coin--will learn and deliver any sonnet of your choice!
Prices start at just $75, and you can spiff up the presentation with a red rose or some gourmet chocolates. If there's something else we can deliver, that can be arranged, too!
Valentine sonnets not only spread the love, they give actors some work AND support GreenStage and Sound Theatre Company and our efforts to create top-notch plays for YOU!
Happy Valentine's Day! We thank you for your support!
GreenStage is committed to making outstanding performances of Shakespeare's plays available and accessible to everyone, regardless of means. Our free Shakespeare in the Park plays have become a favorite summer tradition for many families in the Seattle area. For others, happening across a show in a park on a nice summer day may be the first time they've experienced Shakespeare, or any kind of theater, and it's especially gratifying when we win over a new fan for the arts.
Thank you for your support. We couldn't do it without you! - donate now!
While most of Seattle is out enjoying a summer that just won't quit, GreenStage's band of theater artists has gone to an undisclosed location to prepare for next month's production of Cardenio. It's dark where they are. It's cold. It's creepy. It's a bloody mess.
Cardenio is by Shakespeare and some of his friends. His dead friends. In the play, a usurping Tyrant’s cold blooded scheme to attain love is chilled when the Lady he craves makes a grave attempt to escape his desires. Gruesome and absurd acts of revenge, murder, suicide, lust, grave robbing, and necrophilia, make this romantic tragedy a Hard Bard experience you will never forget. The whole thing comes from the twisted mind of Tony Driscoll, who invented the Hard Bard concept with our gloriously gory Titus Andronicus back in 2009, and is directing Cardenio this time around. That's Aaron Allshouse as the Tyrant and Nicole Vernon as the Lady in the official Cardenio poster at the left. You just can't look away, can you?!
Cardenio runs at the Center House Theatre in the Armory at Seattle Center Nov. 2-17. As with all GreenStage productions it is absolutely FREE. We recommend reservations, and you can go RIGHT HERE to get them now. There will only be 10 performances of the show over three weeks, so get your reservations ASAP. You don't want to miss out. We have not yet discovered any subject matter that WE find objectionable, but we'd understand if you don't bring the kids.
