A Midsummer Night's Tempest

The second production under the auspices of the Watch City Players is underway. The Waltham Arts Council has asked us to do a small Shakespearean presentation at the gazebo in the Waltham Common for a child-and-family audience in July. After deciding that the magical, fairy sections of Shakespeare are the most appealing to a younger crowd who may not necessarily understand the langauge, crearespero and dendron_ges cut together a really clever blending of The Tempest and A Midsummer Night's Dream. We are designing it to be broad, funny, and whimsical.

We had our first rehearsal tonight, and it was a lot of fun and, I think, went very well. I will be reprising my role as Puck, one of my favorite roles I've played, but with a pretty different spin. Where my HTP Puck was calculating and scheming, this Puck is turning out to be a spirit of chaos, very physical, all heart and guts and not much brain. It's going to be very funny, and I felt really good just riffing on this absurd personality.

The show will be going up one night only at the gazebo on Waltham Common at 6PM on Tuesday, July 9th. If you'd care to come out and support us, we should at least be able to make you laugh. :-)
