Freehold will tour Shakespeare's PERICLES, directed by Robin Lynn Smith, to unique locations across the greater Puget Sound area including to the general public, June 24 through July 3, 2011. Realizing the power of theatre to bring about an extraordinary communion between audience and performer is at the core of Freehold's mission and at the heart of our annual Engaged Theatre tour. Since 2003, Freehold's Engaged Theatre has toured Shakespeare productions to communities with little or no access to live theatre. This year the tour will perform for the general public as well as for a number of underserved populations including Echo Glen Children's Center, a juvenile detention center. The tour begins with performances in Seattle for the general public.
The cast for this year's performance of Pericles will be comprised entirely of students from Freehold's Ensemble Training Intensive which is a 10 month acting conservatory program. This performance will be the culmination of the last ten months of the students' training at Freehold.
When asked why she chose Pericles for this year's tour, director Robin Lynn Smith responded that this story addresses a number of powerful themes including the role fate, destiny and providence play in the characters' lives. Pericles' characters discover a powerful lesson that to find themselves they have to lose everything.
This year's Engaged Theatre cast includes: Monica Chilton, Kevin Dailey, Elizabeth Deutsch, Lori Evans, Luisa de Paula, Anthony Leahy, Parker Matthews, Phillip Mitchell, Jonathan Nawn, Riley Neldam, Caleb Slavens, Lance McQueen, Melissa Topscher, Amy Wason, and Kiki Yeung.
Freehold and the artists of Engaged Theatre return eagerly year after year to this work for the creative inspiration it confers on all of us as well as for the opportunity to experience and share in the power and "communion" that occurs between our performers and enthusiastic audience members.
