Does anyone know what plays the Folger Theater is presenting next season?
 
Christine Gray
 
[Editor's Note:
 
I can answer this one.
 
The Shakespeare Theatre (formerly the Folger Shakespeare Theatre) has just
announced its 1995-96 Season:
 
        *Macbeth*       with Stacy Keach as Macbeth and Ed Gero as Banquo
        *Henry 5*       with Derek Smith as H5 and Kelly McGillis as Katherine
        *All's Well*    with Kelly McGillis as Helena
        *Volpone*       with Pat Carroll as Volpone
 
Throughout the year, Shakespeare is still performed at the Folger Library's
Elizabethan Theatre.  Currently, for instance, Michael Tolaydo (a former
member of the resident company years back) is Shylock in a "Source Theatre"
production of *Merchant*, directed by Joe Banno.
 
I should also add that tonight is the last night of the Shakespeare Theatre's
Free for All -- Michael Kahn's revisiting of *12th Night* from a few seasons
back with Kelly McGillis as Volia.  Also, the Shenandoah Shakespeare Express
is at the Source Theatre through July 2, performing *Hamlet*, *The Tempest*,
and *Twelfth Night*.
 
What a summer feast.

Subject:        Announcement of Performance
 
I wished to announce an upcoming performance of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM in
Burlington, VT.
 
As you may remember, the University of Vermont held a Shakespeare festival
every summer for thirty years, until it ended 8 years ago. This performance
will mark the first successful attempt to re-establish summer Shakespeare on
the east side of Lake Champlain.
 
The Champlain Theatre Arts Company - professional actors, directors and
designers  who live and teach in Vermont - will present A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S
DREAM July 13th through 16th at 7:30 each evening, and a matinee at 2:00 pm on
the 15th, at the Alumni Auditorium of Champlain College, one block south of
Main St., at the corner of South Willard and Maple Streets in Burlington.
 
Tickets are $9.00 and $12.00 with discounts available for seniors and children;
they are available at the Flynn Box Office, or by calling 1-800-86-FLYNN.
 
The auditorium is air-conditioned and handicapped-accessible.
