  2. 2. S E AT T L E S H A K E S P E A R E C O M PA N Y Welcome From the Managing Director A few years ago, George Mount asked me,“What does it mean to be Seattle Shakespeare?” It’s a matter that I’ve turned over and over in my head. The question can be looked at two different ways: “What does it mean to be Seattle Shakespeare the organization?” and“What does it mean to produce Shakespeare in Seattle that reflects the city and region’s distinctiveness?” Both are good questions, especially now as this Shakespeare- focused company faces the challenges of change. It’s been a big year. This past April, Seattle Shakespeare Company and Wooden O Theatre merged two burgeoning organizations that both share a deep commitment to Shakespeare and our community. With the energy and resources of two outstanding companies, we will now produce Shakespeare and classics in all seasons – indoors and outdoors – expanding our service to the community and increasing access. The merger is a rare and exciting event, but there’s more. Last spring, we launched a new touring program guided by the vision of having every student in our state experience a professional production of Shakespeare. An ambitious goal, but one we think is so very worth it. Our tour of Romeo and Juliet has crisscrossed the state from Sunnyside to Port Angles, from Omak to Moses Lake, from Wenatchee to Morton and many places in between. It’s an honor to serve as informal ambassadors for Seattle. In all, our touring Romeo and Juliet has had more than 40 performances to more than 10,000 people. We’re on our way to reaching that goal. And there’s been even more change. With the addition of Swansong to this season, we increased our main stage offering to five plays. Within the past four years our operating budget has more than doubled. Our board of directors has increased by nearly 100%. We will serve more than 30,000 people this season, up from 18,000 four years ago. Next year we will hire 200 actors, designers, directors, teaching artists, and other theatre professionals – doubling the amount from four years ago. It’s been so much in such a short time! Which leads back to the touchstone question:“What does it mean to be Seattle Shakespeare?” For me it means staying true to the company’s values while weathering the white water of change. It means continuing to create intimate productions that bring an audience closer to the genius behind the words. It means being true to the text of these plays while being innovative in our approach. It means always searching for new ways people can enter into these wonderful works. And most of all it means valuing and respecting artists and audiences, students and teachers, staff and volunteers – we all play a part in this living art. I know Seattle Shakespeare Company will continue to evolve as every growing and living thing should, and I hope that you’ll continue to live the great questions with us for some time to come. Enjoy the show. John Bradshaw, Managing Director John Bradshaw. Photo: John Ulman

  4. 4. S E AT T L E S H A K E S P E A R E C O M PA N Y O love is the crooked thing, There is nobody wise enough To find out all that is in it, For he would be thinking of love Till the stars had run away And the shadows eaten the moon. WB Yeats These lines of poetry have resounded with me for years, haunting me with the notion that there is no one wise enough to find out all that is in love. Does that mean we settle for less? Or that we give up on love too easily? Do we abandon relationships that push us out of our comfort zone, even when the comfort zone has not served us in the past, and only by pushing through to whatever is on the other side, will we be able to arrive at a transcendent love? When we do release love- where does that love go? What happens to lost love? When love was new, first found and first acknowledged, it certainly had matter. Palpable matter. How can it just disappear? I do not think I am wise, but I am sure there is more in love– I feel it–and I want to be challenged and nurtured to arrive at the discovery. I am certain my growth will be eternally stunted until I arrive at the other side of the love journey. I promise myself to be fearless in my pursuit – because always, for me, it is fear that has prevented me from finding out all that is in love. Unlike Helena in All’s Well That Ends Well…who is fearless. Helena – in the face of great adversity, in the face of searing rejection, will continue to love through to the other side. She will be the wise one who Yeats declares does not exist. And through her service of love, to love, and the active choice to manifest love in all responses, she will perform miracles and elevate everyone she touches. Shakespeare titles this play All’s Well That End’s Well. It seems to dismiss the trial of the journey, but maybe it reveals to us the greatest discovery of love: That love accepts, forgives, fortifies, and transforms. It meets all challenges. It faces the fear. It embraces the“we.” In the arms of each other, we learn how to be. In the arms of each other, is grace.

  5. 5. Jumpstart into All’s Well That Ends Well A quick way to get you up to speed on the play, but not give too much away. S E AT T L E S H A K E S P E A R E C O M PA N Y Helena, the orphaned daughter of a physician, has been adopted by the Countess of Rossillion and is secretly in love with the Countess’ son, Bertram. After his father’s death, Bertram departs Rossillion for the French court, where the King is gravely ill. Wishing to follow Bertram, Helena journeys to Paris. While at court Helena cures the King of a painful fistula with one of her father’s old remedies. Grateful for the relief from his illness, the King rewards Helena with her choice of a husband from all the Lords at court. She asks for Bertram, who is outraged at being commanded to marry a woman he sees as little better than a servant. They proceed with the wedding ceremony, but Bertram leaves immediately for the Italian wars. He vows that he will not accept Helena as his wife until she has conceived his child and obtained from him a ring - two seemingly impossible conditions. Bertram travels to Florence, where he is quickly promoted through the ranks. While in Italy he meets, falls for and plans to seduce Diana, a widow’s daughter. With faith that her heart has chosen well, Helena, disguised as a pilgrim, also travels to Florence where she also meets Diana...

  12. 12. S E AT T L E S H A K E S P E A R E C O M PA N Y Take It Outside By George Mount whether you’ve been a fan of Seattle Shakespeare Company or Wooden O, or both! You’ll recognize actors like Kelly Kitchens, Jim Gall, David Quicksall, Hana Lass, David Goldstein and many more. I’ll be directing Romeo and Juliet with a very modern take, as we examine the classic love story from across battle lines forged by political and national conflict, not just feuding families. For A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Wooden O favorite Vanessa Miller gives a psychedelic casino twist on her Las Vegas inspired production. Very groovy! The Wooden O series of free outdoor productions will play Mercer Island’s Luther Burbank Park Amphitheater and numerous other parks, starting July 10. A complete schedule with map directions is available at the website, All productions are free (donations accepted) and picnics are encouraged. After a long eight months spent watching great Shakespeare inside our Center House theatre, it’s time to take it outside! “Now is the winter of our discontent Changed to glorious summer…” Summer is coming, so get outside and a see a play! Seattle Shakespeare Company, the region’s best indoor Shakespeare company, has merged with Wooden O, the premier outdoor Shakespeare company. Wooden O is a theatre I started in 1994 as a way to bring the highest quality classical theatre to as many people in our region as possible, in a setting as accessible as it is entertaining. 2008 marks our fifteenth annual free Shakespeare in the parks season, and we’re bringing our shows to a park near you! Wooden O’s fifteenth season is, in essence, a gift to our audiences. We’re bringing to life Shakespeare’s best loved and most popular plays: Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. These are two timeless and time-tested tales of love and the pitfalls of being in love. It really will be a“summer of love.” We’ve also brought together some of your favorite artists for these shows, This summer, after we’ve finished touring the King county parks, we’re packing up our sets and costumes and heading to Walla Walla, Washington. The Wooden O production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream will play at the Fort Walla Walla Amphitheater August 6-10 at 8PM thanks to a unique venture entitled Shakespeare Uncorked. Shakespeare Uncorked in Walla Walla aims to present outdoor professional productions of Shakespeare’s work and other classical plays for the people and visitors in the Southeast Washington region. We’re thrilled to be able perform for our new friends on the other side of the state, and, if you’re in the area this summer (or want to make a special trip out!), we hope to see you at the show.

  13. 13. S E AT T L E S H A K E S P E A R E C O M PA N Y DIY Shakespeare at Camp Bill Getting Our Act Together And Taking It On the Road Up at the theatre by 5AM to load the set and head out to another part of state. That’s what it’s been like for Seattle Shakespeare Company’s troupe of touring players who have been on the road with Romeo and Juliet more or less since last October. In April, in addition to all the miles they’ve logged in the van, the 5-actor group passed the 10K mark (10,000 audience members, that is) and they still had plenty of towns and schools to visit in their trek across the state. “Thank you for coming to Port Angeles, WA!” wrote Suzanne Keegan, a 2nd grade teacher at Franklin Elementary. “We just watched 90 minutes of constant action. My class had a wonderful time and we would do it all over again. Those actors were working the whole time to keep our students engaged and enthralled. Some of our students had never seen a professional production and couldn't get enough. Again, thank you.” Seattle Shakespeare Company’s tour of Romeo and Juliet is supported through a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts Shakespeare in American Communities initiative that helped to fund free performances in Port Angeles, Wenatchee, and Morton. And it’s not just schools that the troupe has toured to but local performing arts centers as well,“I just got a call from the principal from Paschal Sherman Indian School to say thank you, it was wonderful, and the kids were GLUED to their seats,” wrote Kate Jones from Methow Valley Arts. “This is huge, especially for a school where many of the kids are struggling with very complicated lives and have had little to no experience with this type of performance. I also received a call from a teacher from another school to say thank you, and was stopped on the street by the principal of the local school to say the same. Bringing this performance to our rural communities is a real treat for us, and provides an opportunity for kids to experience Shakespeare in a truly engaging manner.” The tour of Romeo and Juliet wraps up with a few more engagements in the fall. In spring of 2009 Seattle Shakespeare Company will launch a 6-actor Othello that will tour through spring 2010. To bring one of Seattle Shakespeare Company’s touring productions to your area, contact George Mount at (206) 733-8228 ext. 212. Leilani Aileene Saper and Brandon Petty in Romeo and Juliet. Photo Ken Holmes Join Seattle Shakespeare Company for a summer experience like no other - a summer spent with Shakespeare. Camp Bill is an immersion into the world of Shakespeare performance. It isn’t just about learning the plays; it’s about living the plays. “It was by far the best acting experience I have so far ever had,” one recent camper told us. “Because of Camp Bill, I want to act more, not just with my school, like I have before, but in a more intense experience.” Camp Bill is for teenagers who really want a“Do-It- Yourself ” experience of Shakespeare. No matter what a teenager’s exposure to the Bard has been, Camp Bill has a level to match it. Camp Bill Basics instructs beginning or younger acting students in the skills needed for the Advance Production Intensive. It’s a great chance to get your feet wet as an actor, focus on a specific play, and build your skills with voice and text work, scene study, and Elizabethan dance and movement. Last year’s Camp Bill Production Intensive students produced and performed A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Everyone who signed up got a role, but they also built and painted sets, found props, sewed costumes and more. On stage and backstage, Camp Bill Production Intensive exposes campers to all aspects of stagecraft. This year Camp Bill starts in June with a one week session (June 23-27), a two-week session (July 7-18), and the three week intensive (July 21-Aug 8). To sign up or get more information go to or call (206) 733-8228 ext 212.
