presents
“A Shakespeare Musicale,”

The Neurosciences Institute, La Jolla
November 17th 2008
7:30 pm

A special program highlighting music from Elizabethan England. This one-night only event features songs from Shakespeare’s plays and music from the English renaissance. “A Shakespeare Musicale” was devised by Artistic Director Vanessa Dinning and Writer-in-Residence David Wiener.

The music of Shakespeare's plays within the setting of the royal court. Join us for Clown Songs, Court Songs, Drinking Songs, Masked Balls, and other frivolity, all taking place under the watchful eyes of two estranged queens, Elizabeth and Mary. The Mistress of Ceremonies is Sandra Ellis-Troy, one of San Diego's busiest and most talented actresses. For this event, Ellis-Troy will bring to life the antics of Jane the Fool, Elizabeth’s only female jester.

Performers include the acclaimed early music group Courtly Noyse and, returning to this event, Vox Nobili.  Other cast members include: Tara Pool, Susan Abernethy, Jack Winans, Ed Hollingsworth, Morgan Hollingsworth, Bill Nolan, Steve Jensen, Anthony Hamm, Daniel and Rebecca Myers, Vanessa Dinning and numerous local children from San Diego County.

San Diego Shakespeare Society presents a staged reading of
SHAKESPEARE'S THE TEMPEST

MONDAY NOV 24th at 7:30pm

WESTMINSTER PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
3598 Talbot Street, San Diego, CA, 92106

The Shakespeare Society is thrilled to be joined by renowned actress Kandis Chappell in this, probably Shakespeare's last play. Chappell, fresh from this year's Shakespeare Summer Season at the Old Globe will team up with her once drama teacher, Jack Winans, who will direct her in the challenging and luminous lead role of Prospero at the Westminster Presbyterian Church in Point Loma.

Winans continues his tradition of directing staged readings from audition to performance in under a week. In the last two years, for the Society, he has directed Richard III and Much Ado About Nothing under the same set of pressures.

"It's such a fun way to work," says Vanessa Dinning, the Society's Artistic Director. "Shakespeare's actors sometimes had less time to get their show up and running.  It keeps our actors on their toes and keeps the work fresh and alive."

Auditions are to be held at the church on Tuesday 18th and Wednesday 19th November, rehearsals are on Nov 20th, 21st and 22nd and the performance will take place on 24th November in the Sanctuary at Westminster Presbyterian.

Suggested donation $10, SDSS members free
