Well, it’s been a slow patch for EP’s website, but that’s mainly because all co-founders have been super busy making movies, rocking theatre festivals, organizing flash mobs and all kinds of other jazz! However, we will be sending out some fun news soon! Stay tuned!
Hope everyone is enjoying summer and that you get to check out all of the theatre shows and festivals which have already begun their seasons for the year, so explore NL and check them out!
New World Theatre Project has opened their season with unique Shakespeare and classical adaptations, such as their Newfoundland-inspired The Tempest which officially premiered TONIGHT! New World will be sharing a wonderful lineup of theatre this summer in Cupids, NL. Check out New World’s Website here for more info.
New World Theatre Project opens its 2012 season with a Newfoundland inspired production of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest, starring Greg Malone as Prospero. In honour of the 400th anniversary of the first contact between John Guy and the Beothuk in Cupids, Newfoundland, this dramatic re-imagining is conceived and directed by Jeannette Lambermont-Morey, with a score composed by Mi’kmaq artist, Cathy Elliott, who also plays Ariel. Featuring Jake Bradbury, Courtney Brown, Neil Butler, Gabriella Colavecchio, Liam Dawson, Cathy Elliott, Jerry Etienne, Brian Marler, Stan Nochasak and Paul Rowe, with costume design by Peggy Hogan.
To get into the summer theatre mood, enjoy some local shakespeare while having out in the park if you’re in St. John’s. Shakespeare By The Sea is a community based, non-profit theatre that shares it’s stage with the boats and beauty of Harbourside Park (among other outdoor venues) in the summer months. Wear sunscreen, bring a drink, enjoy the sun and fun shows such as A Midsummer Night’s Dream which opens tomorrow! Break legs!
