Shakespeare Academy @ Stratford (Connecticut) welcomes back British alumni
CAST, the Cambridge University American Stage Tour, group of young artists from the UK’s University of Cambridge will perform The Taming of the Shrew, Friday, September 25, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m at the Shakespeare Academy @ Stratford (SA@S) on Elm Street.
Tickets are free, but should be reserved in advance. Donations are warmly accepted to support the theatrical group.
The event is presented by The Mighty Quinn Foundation, which in 2014 launched SA@S, a training-intensive summer rep company for college students which focuses on Shakespeare and Ensemble Theater Making. It completed its second season this summer.
This season, SA@S welcomed three Cambridge students to the summer program.
CAST, established under the patronage of Dame Judi Dench in 2000, is one of the major international theatre tours of the University of Cambridge. It aims to bring the work of Shakespeare to as wide an audience as possible in the eastern United States.
Now in its sixteenth year, Cambridge University’s largest international tour show has been performing to packed houses and critical acclaim since 2000. Each September, Cambridge’s most talented actors, directors, designers and technicians travel across the Atlantic to bring a Shakespeare play to colleges, high schools and professional theaters.
The Mighty Quinn Foundation is a organizational member of the Coastal Arts Guild of CT.
