Theatre at St. Michael’s presents Othello

Othello-postTheatre at St. Michael’s is proud to present William Shakespeare’s timely and thought-provoking tragedy, “Othello” on Friday, July 15th and Saturday, July 16th at 7:00. This performance will feature actors ages 14 – 18, who have been intensively studying the play in a two-week program under the direction of Christina Johnston. Assistant direction is by Chelsea Boergesson, fight choreography is by Jason Robert LeClair, and design is by Patrick Grimes.

Actors include Nadia Leinhos as the noble but fraught Othello, Lynne Sipprelle as a tragically lovely Desdemona, and Scott Powell as the evilly manipulative Iago. The cast is rounded out by Kate Fairgrieve, John Thornton, Eliza Staples, Samantha DiMedia, Olivia Gravier, Lana Gaige, Cecelia Brower, Lily Trodson, William Harkins, Kamran Bina, Roan Iribarren, Alyx Cartin-Erickson, Allyson Grant, and Bridget Vanderveer. Emma Daigneault and Kaitlyn Burgess are working with the camp staff to design and build the show.

The performance is free and open to the public, but deals with themes that may unsuitable for young children. Parental discretion advised. Donations are welcome at the door. For more information, please contact TASM camp director Christina Johnston at (401) 849-5970 x411.

Additional TASM performances this summer will include an original musical to be performed on July 29th and 30th, as well as Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” on August 12th and 13th.
