Shakespeare at Winedale’s 2012 summer class takes the stage this summer with performances of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Winter’s Tale, and, for the first time at Winedale, Coriolanus. Performances will begin July 19th and run through August 12th; performances are Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 7:30pm with matinees on Saturdays and Sundays at 2pm. Tickets are $10 for general admission or $5 for students/UT ID holders and may be ordered online through the Shakespeare at Winedale website www.shakespeare-winedale.org.
Shakespeare at Winedale is a University of Texas program in which students study and perform Shakespeare at the Winedale Historical Complex near Round Top. Since its founding by English professor James Ayres in 1970, the program’s unique, hands-on approach has brought Shakespeare’s words to life for hundreds of students and thousands of audience members. University students from many disciplines and backgrounds work together for six weeks at Winedale, ending their summer with four weekends of performances in a converted nineteenth-century hay barn.
For the first time in the program’s history, this summer’s class will perform Shakespeare’s riveting political thriller Coriolanus. “We are very excited to be doing the Winedale premiere of Coriolanus,” said program Director James Loehlin, “one of Shakespeare’s richest explorations of politics-- perfect for an election year! Coriolanus is set in the earliest days of the Roman republic, but still pertinent today.”
