This Saturday, May 25, The Pigeon Creek Shakespeare Company returns to the Rose Theater at Blue Lake with our production of Twelfth Night.
The Rose is patterned after Shakespeare’s Globe in London, and is one of only a handful of authentic reconstructed Elizabethan playhouses in the world. For an original practices Shakespeare company like Pigeon Creek, performing in one of these spaces always feels like coming home. We work hard to recreate Shakespearean performance practices in spaces that were not originally designed for them, and adapting ours shows to multiple venues is one of the fun, but challenging things about being a touring company. The chance to perform Shakespeare in a space that so accurately reflects the spaces for which he was writing is a rare and wonderful experience.
Pigeon Creek’s Twelfth Night cast features several actors with a history of working in reconstructed Renaissance playhouses, and several for whom this will be a new experience. Our cast also includes three of the four actors in the world who have worked onstage at the Globe in London, the Blackfriars Playhouse in Staunton, VA and now the Rose in Blue Lake.
The chance to see a performance like this in a space like this doesn’t come along often. We are thrilled to be able to share it with you!
