Subject:      Stratford Festival Open House & 1991 Lineup
 
Dear Fellow SHAKSPEReans;
 
Once more I risk a local announcement, but since so many of you have
indicated your affection for the Stratford (Ontario) Festival, perhaps
I'm safe in assuming a general interest here.  This press release
came in today's mail:
 
     Stratford Festival preparations are progressing for the 39th
     season and you are invited to discover some of the magic and
     mystery backstage as the Festival presents its annual Open House,
     Sunday March 10, between 11:00am and 5:00pm at the Festival Theatre.
 
     Stratford's annual Open House features comprehensive guided tours
     that include demonstrations and displays of "stage-craft", the
     backstage areas and the production workshops of the Festival Theatre.
     The tours also include "the underworld" and the stage.  This is a
     wonderful opportunity to see some of the behind-the-scenes preparations
     for the fourteen productions being presented during the upcoming
     season.
 
     Tours will last approximately 50 minutes, with the final tour
     commencing at 4:15pm.  No reservations are needed and admission is
     free.
 
     Staffing for the Open House will include members of the Acting Company
     and members of the Festival staff and crew who have volunteered their
     time.
 
Incidentally, backstage tours are available every Sunday morning, from
June 9 to November 10, but must be reserved in advance and admission is
normally $5.
 
Since we now know the RSC lineup, perhaps I should add a brief summary
of Stratford Ontario's: David William is directing Colm Feore as *Hamlet*;
Richard Monette is directing *Much Ado About Nothing*, with Brian Bedford
(Dogberry), Colm Feore (Benedick), Nicholas Pennell (Leonato), and Goldie
Semple (Beatrice); Bernard Hopkins is directing *Twelfth Night*, with
Anne Wright (Viola), Roberta Maxwell (Maria), William Dunlop (Sir Toby),
and Douglas Chamberlain (Feste); and Michael Langham is directing Bedford as
*Timon of Athens*.  Bernard Hopkins is also directing Beaumont's *Knight of
the Burning Pestle*, re-mounted from last year with an entirely new cast
(as yet unidentified) drawn from the Young Company.
 
For those of you who occasionally like to stray from Shakespeare and his
contemporaries, there will also be the inevitable musical, Rodgers &
Hammerstein's *Carousel*; Elliott Hayes' adaptation of R.L.S.'s *Treasure
Island*; Thornton Wilder's *Our Town*; Michel Tremblay's *Les Belles Soeurs*;
Moliere's *School for Wives*; Henrik Ibsen's *An Enemy of the People*;
Elliott Hayes' *Homeward Bound*; Luigi Pirandello's *The Rules of the Game*;
and A.R. Gurney's *Love Letters*.  Quite enough to keep us all broke!
