Subject:        RSC Symposium

This is a notice to any and all list-members in the Chicago area.

There has been much discussion of the current RSC tour of _Midsummer_; here is
a chance to hear and engage with members of the company to discuss their
current production and modern approaches to staging Shakespeare in general.

Court Theatre, the professional classical theatre in residence at the
University of Chicago, is sponsoring a joint symposium with the RSC on
contemporary Shakespeare--ways of maintaining the vibrancy and life of classic
plays, through staging, adaptation, design, educational outreach and whatever
other means come to mind.  Members of the theater and academic communities, or
interested audience-members, are cordially invited to attend.

Tickets are available from Court Theatre at (312) 753-4472 or show up FRIDAY,
FEBRUARY 9TH at 4pm to attend the symposium. There is a nominal fee of $5 for
entry. Should be a lively discussion. Court is located at 5535 S. Ellis Ave. in
Hyde Park..

HELP!

Tygres Heart Shakespeare Company in Portland, Oregon is scheduled to open its
spring production of Hamlet on April 12, with rehearsals commencing the end of
February.  We have just lost the actor who was cast to play the role of Hamlet,
and are desperately in search of recommendations for equity or non-equity
actors qualified and available to perform the role.  The run of the production
is six weeks with performances Wednesday through Saturday nights, Sunday
matinees, one Saturday family matinee (a 90 minute abbreviated version) and
four daytime student matinees.

The production will be directed by founding artistic director Jan Powell.

Tygres Heart is a semi-professional company whose mission is "ferociously good
Shakespeare in an intimate setting." The emphasis of the company is on text and
not production values.  Consequently, the actor cast must have a solid command
of Shakespearean verse.

All performances are in the Dolores Winningstad Theatre of the Portland Center
for the Performing Arts.  The space is a 250 seat house configured as an
intimate Elizabethan courtyard theatre.  Members of the Shakespeare Theatre
Association of America may recall that this theatre was the site of last year's
annual conference.

We would appreciate any recommendations being e-mailed direct to

Tygres Heart at (503)222-4173.

Thanks for your help
