About this production:
Led by Associate Artistic Director Maura Hanlon, the Young Company takes on Shakespeare’s thrilling romance, Winter’s Tale. Jealousy, desire, power, betrayal redemption, and Shakespeare’s most famous stage direction, “Exit, pursued by bear” all come together to weave a sweeping tale of the triumph of love and forgiveness.
The Young Company features a talented group of 40 students with hometowns stretching from Plymouth to Truro supported by Cape Rep Company artists including Hanlon with assistant director Ian Hamilton, Julie Allen Hamilton and Tori Mondello (stage management), Alison Weller (voice and speech coach), Art Devine (stage combat), Chelsey Jo Brown (movement and choreography), Susan Nicholson (lighting design), Holly Erin McCarthy (costume design) and Janine Perry (Producing Artistic Director).
