FEburary 2024

Touring season has been well underway!  Meadowlark Shakespeare Players have taken both our Midsummer Night’s Dream, Winter’s Tale and Henry VIII to schools near and far to our home in the Shenandoah valley!

We are also about to open Francis Beaumont’s Knight of the Burning Pestle at the Blackfriars!  Tech has been more rigorous than our other shows, but working with Constance Swain, our guest director, has been a dream.  Coming up in March:  The Witch and our MFA festival!

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is off!  We’ve toured twice this month already, and will continue to visit area schools in the spring semester.  

We also performed Henry VIII this past term at the Blackfriars Playhouse, which was an awesome experience.  I look forward to take this small scale show on tour as well! 

Casting has also been finalized for our two shows in Spring of 2024:  in Francis Beaumont’s Knight of the Burning Pestle, I will be playing Lady Pompiona, as well as other ensemble elements as needed. And Thomas Middleton’s The Witch, I will be playing the titular witch herself, Hecate!

Rehearsals have begun for A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare, co-directed by Alaina Smith  and Johnny Williams III for Meadowlark Shakespeare Players!  This is our touring education show, so we will be available for classroom and school performances mid-October in the Shenandoah Valley area!

August Physical Training Intensive is a wrap!  Our MFA Company, Meadowlark Shakespeare Players, came together to spend 10 days of intense Suzuki and Viewpoints training together as fuel for the devising work we used to create our season opener, Oh So Tender.
