The Bard’s comedy is as relevant as ever. At the center of this slapstick comedy involving two sets of identical twins separated at birth is a story of immigrants in a strange land facing expulsion and possible death at the hands of a tyrannical Duke.

Director David Gassner served for several years as the Artistic Director at Theater Schmeater, where he directed the west coast premieres of Maria/Stuart and The American Pilot, the world premiere of Mamet Schmamet!, Kvetch, and The Mandrake. Other past directing projects include Dangerous Corner, Glengarry Glen Ross (twice!), To Kill a Mockingbird, Breaking the Code, Our Town, and two weekends with 14/48. As an actor, he’s appeared locally with Seattle Shakespeare Company/Wooden O, Seattle Public Theater, 14/48, Seattle Fringe Festival, and Theater Schmeater.

GreenStage, Seattle’s Shakespeare in the Park Company, will offer four plays this summer during its 29th year of performing free Shakespeare in Seattle-area parks. The calendar includes full-cast versions of Richard II, directed by Susannah Rose Woods, and of The Comedy of Errors, directed by David Gassner.

In addition, GreenStage will stage two “Backyard Bard” shows; abridged versions of plays running about an hour and using the same for actors in each for all roles. Hamlet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be directed by Erin Day.

A full schedule of performances and the cast and crew for each play are on our website. Participating companies are GreenStage, Seattle Shakespeare Company’s Wooden O, Last Leaf Productions, Theater Schmeater, The 14/48 Projects, Freehold Theatre, Jet City Improv, Young Shakespeare Workshop, and Shakespeare Northwest.

King Richard II has a short and troubled reign; he’s often indecisive and at other times abrupt and arbitrary, not always good ways to win friends and allies. His clumsy handling of a dispute between two Dukes, one his cousin, splits the kingdom and sets Richard on the path to downfall. It’s the first part of a tetralogy following Richard II and his immediate successors, Henry IV and Henry V.

Director Susannah Rose Woods is the the Founding Artistic Director of Island Shakespeare Festival. She has served as Artistic Director for three theatre companies in the San Francisco Bay Area and has worked across the country with both professional and youth theatre companies, including Marin Shakespeare Company, The Curtain Theatre, Shotgun Players, TheatreWorks, and, most recently, with Seven Stages Shakespeare Company in New Hampshire. She is a professional screenwriter and playwright as well as a published poet. She was awarded a commendation from Senator Barbara Boxer for her work with youth theatre and is the recipient of a number of awards for both her writing and directing, including the Elizabeth George Foundation Grant, Humanitarian Teacher of the Year Award, the Bay Area Critics Award, and a variety of national and international awards for her screenwriting.

Director Erin Day is GreenStage’s Artistic Director, who last summer played Mistress Page in our production of The Merry Wives of Windsor. Since moving from Washington, D.C., Erin found a home in GreenStage. She has also performed with Seattle Public Theater, Theatre Babylon, Seattle Fringe Festival, The Washingtonians!, and others. Erin is a member of the Midnite Mystery Players.

GreenStage, Seattle’s Shakespeare in the Park Company, will offer four plays this summer during its 29th year of performing free Shakespeare in Seattle-area parks. The calendar includes full-cast versions of Richard II, directed by Susannah Rose Woods, and of The Comedy of Errors, directed by David Gassner.

In addition, GreenStage will stage two “Backyard Bard” shows; abridged versions of plays running about an hour and using the same for actors in each for all roles. Hamlet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be directed by Erin Day.

A full schedule of performances and the cast and crew for each play are on our website. Participating companies are GreenStage, Seattle Shakespeare Company’s Wooden O, Last Leaf Productions, Theater Schmeater, The 14/48 Projects, Freehold Theatre, Jet City Improv, Young Shakespeare Workshop, and Shakespeare Northwest.

Shrek the Musical matinee @ West Seattle High School
Aug 19 @ 3:00 pm – 5:30 pm

Twelfth Night Productions (TNP) is proud to present SHREK THE MUSICAL.
“Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek….” and thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand… and his name is Shrek.
“SHREK THE MUSICAL is sweet and busy, nice and big, and, every so often, extremely lovable,” writes Newsday.

This production will be performed at West Seattle High School Theater, August 11, 12, 18 and 19 at 7:30 and August 13, 19 and 20 at 3:00. Tickets are available online at Brown Paper Tickets, and at West Seattle High School Theater, 3000 California Ave SW, an hour before the show on performance days. Prices are $23 for adults and $20 for students & seniors. http://www.twelfthnightproductions.org/
