SANDWICH — Advice To The Players is gearing up for its 2014 summer season, which will include an Elizabethan fair, an exhibit of production photos and costumes and an appearance at the Corner House Pub, as well as Shakespeare Camps, a Fairgrounds Stage production of The Merry Wives of Windsor and a modern comedy where Sherlock Holmes meets Hamlet. "We are offering something for everyone," says Executive Director Becca Boyden. "Since Shakespeare can be such fun in so many different ways, we are offering some new programs for our community."
First up is ShakesBEER on Tap on June 19, a free, rollicking on-our-feet reading of A Midsummer Night's Dream at 6:30 p.m. at the Corner House Pub in Center Sandwich. "This will be very exuberant and involving for the audience, and also quite down to earth," comments director Andrew Codispoti, who has modeled the event on 7 Stages Shakespeare of Portsmouth's ShakesBEERience. "This is not lofty Shakespeare up on a pedestal but more like what Shakespeare's own performances would have been: earthy, merry, spontaneous, a little rough around the edges, and very heart-felt."
The second free program is the Elizabethan Family Faire, aimed at youngsters and their families. Come out on Sunday June 22 from 1-4 for this mini-fair, which will feature opportunities for kids to dress up, decorate their own hats and crowns, do a little sword-play and enjoy some classic games. "We all love Renaissance Faires," comments production designer Caroline Boldt. "Well, this is how we start bringing the fun of a period fair to Center Sandwich." Faire lovers in the area are invited to dress up and join in the fun, and are encouraged to help ATTP plan for a bigger Faire in 2015.
Up next are the popular Shakespeare Drama Camps led this year by Richard Posner and Sharon Paquette. "I am thrilled to be joining ATTP's Education Team," says Ms. Paquette, an Adjunct Professor at Plymouth State University. "This is a great opportunity to combine my love of teaching with my love of Shakespeare." The camps offer theatre games and training for ages 8 to 15 and conclude with a free performance at 10AM on Friday, July 25.
This year's July production is Sherlock Holmes and The Case of Hamlet or Yorick Kidding Me! by Warren Bain & Matt Bernard. With performances at the Sandwich Town Hall Theater 'Second Stage' was inaugurated last summer with Mark Woollett's original melodrama adaptation of Richard III; Mark will return to direct 'Sherlock' as well as appearing in the August production of The Merry Wives of Windsor. "This is a very funny play out of the St. Lawrence Shakespeare Festival," says Mark. "We are very lucky to be doing the American premiere." Sherlock will be on Friday and Saturday evenings.
The company closes its summer season in August with a Fairgrounds Stage production of Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor directed by Candace Clift. "We have planned this delightful romp around two of our favorite ATTP actors," comments Clift. "I am delighted to be directing Caroline and Vivian Nesbit in the roles of the merry wives!" Also featuring local favorite Chris Boldt as loveable and rotund rogue, Sir John Falstaff, The Merry Wives of Windsor is the original "Desperate Housewives" of Elizabethan England.
