Subject:        STAA

Greetings & Salutations,

The Shakespeare Theatre Association of America was established to
provide a forum for the artistic and managerial leadership of theatres
whose central activity is the production of Shakespeare's plays; to
discuss issues and share methods of work, resources, and information;
and to act as an advocate for Shakespearian productions and training in
the United States.

If you are a member of a theatre or a group which performs the works of
William Shakespeare, we invite you to join the membership (currently 50
theatres) of STAA.

Founded in 1990, STAA is a diverse group of theatres with one uniting
passion---the plays of William Shakespeare.  Once a year we get together
for a three day conference hosted by one of our membership.

The planning for the 1998 STAA annual conference, January 8 - 10, hosted
by the Georgia Shakespeare Festival in Atlanta is in full swing.

I am very excited by the new format and the content of the panels &
workshops.  We will also have rooms reserved for breakout sessions
during each of the three days.  These breakout sessions can be focused
around a topic or issue which comes up during the day and that a group
of people would like to explore.

Here is a teaser of some of the panels we are working on . . .

Day One: Thursday, January 8th --- Education & Marketing Issues

Education Theme:  Developing a vital integration between education and
the overall artistic mission of the organization.

Shakespearian Theatre A Vehicle for Social Change?

I think you will agree that we have some exciting topics.  We need your
membership, attendance, and participation to keep STAA a viable
organization.

The membership dues are exceedingly cheap --- $100.00 per year.  This
allows even the smallest theatre or group to join.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me immediately (e-mail:

Subject:        The Original Shakespeare Company

Louis Hancock, one of the founding members of Patrick Tucker's *Original
Shakespeare Company* who performed this month at the new Globe, will be
repeating his lecture and workshop on directions contained in the Folio
texts for my class at Concordia University in Montreal in the latter
part of October.

Should anyone here be interested in engaging his services and hearing
him talk about the relationship between script and movement as well as
`interpretation', feel free to e-mail me at the above address.  The
sooner the likelier, of course.

Subject:         Moscow Arts Take on WT, A&C and Hamlet

Alexander Marin from the M.A.T. will be addressing my Shakespeare class
at Concordia in Montreal at the end of October. He has directed both
*Winter's Tale* and *Antony and Cleopatra* for the Centaur Theatre here
in Montreal, in very physical productions. As I am teaching *Hamlet* in
the first half of this semester, he has agreed to discuss his postmodern
approaches to this play too.

He is a vivacious and eccentric young Russian man of the theatre,
dedicated to the visual clarification of problematic textual moments,
who receives consistently high and detailed praise from press and casts.

Anyone on this list who might be interested in engaging him for similar
classes might consider contacting me at the above address.

Subject:        Aboriginal Dream

I've just seen an item on our TV news in Australia about an
all-Aboriginal production of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' which is to be
performed as part of the next Festival of the Dreaming (an Aboriginal
arts festival).  They showed some film of the production, which looked
quite interesting.  It uses the usual text but with Aboriginal motifs in
the set and costume design; one scene showed a character (not sure who)
emerging from a giant Waratah, a native flower.  I'll keep an eye out
for further news of this production and post some comments here.

Tim Richards.
