May 25 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Auditions for The Grand’s upcoming summer production of “Downeast Shakes & Shenanigans” are scheduled for May 25 from 5:30-7 p.m. at the Woodlawn Museum. Please park near the croquet course. We will be doing the auditions in the open space to adjacent to the course.
Performances are scheduled for- July 8-11 and July 15-18 outdoors on the grounds at Woodlawn Museum. The production is being directed by Brent Hutchins. Come prepared to read from the script with your best Downeast Maine accent.
Well, folks, its taken over 400 years, but thanks to The Grand in Ellsworth, Shakespeare has finally been translated into the modern Downeast vernacular, so that it can be enjoyed, and critiqued by a broader and perhaps earthier populace than it has been since it was written for the same ilk of audience in the Elizabethan times of yore. Join us at Woodlawn as we present “Downeast Shakes & Shenanigans,” a Downeast romp through some of the Bard’s best bits.
