Call for Volunteers: Seattle Shakespeare Company

17 Oct

The Seattle Shakespeare Company down at the Seattle Center is dedicated to preserving Shakespeare and his contemporarie’s literary arts and making them accessible to a modern day public. With such innovations as chamber productions (Julius Caeser and Othello being the last two season’s utter successes of minimalist productions); all-male casts (The Taming of the Shrew, anyone?); and musicals (A Midsummer’s Night Dream rock n’roll version); traveling shows throughout the state; elementary school visits, and so on, the SSC is a proud sponsor of the arts in the Western Washington area.

Ready to check out a show for free and dedicate a few hours of volunteering to this organization? I’ll be there for a few shows!

Starting next week is Henry V and volunteers are needed ASAP for that show as well as the others following on its heels:

§ HENRY IV (Oct. 21 – Nov. 16, 2008)

Directed by SSC Artistic Director Stephanie Shine

An epic coming of age featuring the great comic rogue – Falstaff.

§ A SERVANT OF TWO MASTERS (Jan. 6 – Feb 1, 2009)

Directed by Carlo Goldoni

A collision course of clowning with the wise-cracking Truffaldino.

§ THE TURN OF THE SCREW (Jan. 13 –30, 2008)

Directed by Jeffrey Hatcher

An eerie adaptation of Henry James’ chilling ghost story.

§ THE MERCHANT OF VENICE (Mar. 11 – Apr. 5, 2008)
