Erin Caswell

Winter may be gone (kinda), but the Winter of our Discontent is coming soon!

ERIN CASWELL first performed with us in Titus Andronicus, where she (not surprisingly) died.

RICHARD III is coming this July. In celebration of his recent disinterment (and re-interment), we wanted to know:

1. Where would you like to be buried and subsequently dug up in 500 years?
ERIN: The south of France

2. What would you do for the Crown? (no murdered relatives)
ERIN: I would donate a bunch of money to some great arts organizations, eat octopus, and pogo-stick race across a football field (English football)

3. If you were locked up in the Tower of London, who would you want to be locked up with you?
ERIN: My Husband.

You know who else likes France? Queen Margaret! Check out her and two more queens (and even more mothers) in Richard III!

Winter may be gone (kinda), but the Winter of our Discontent is coming soon!

KAMRON PALMER first performed with us in Much Ado About Nothing as our good neighbor Verges.

RICHARD III is coming this July. In celebration of his recent disinterment (and re-interment), we wanted to know:

1. Where would you like to be buried and subsequently dug up in 500 years?
KAMRON: Next to the peat beds of the Laphroaig distillery.  My House words are “Scotch, even in death.”

2. What would you do for the Crown? (no murdered relatives)
KAMRON: I’d climb the highest mountain, I’d swim the deepest ocean, I’d walk along the longest path, solve the hardest puzzle, read the boringest book, I’d hold the hottest substance, race the fastest animal, eat the biggest meal, to be with that crown, oh oh!

3. If you were locked up in the Tower of London, who would you want to be locked up with you?
KAMRON: I’d feel guilty condemning a real person to stay locked up with me, so…Magneto.  And then we wouldn’t be locked up any more..

If you want Magneto in your corner, be sure and catch Kamron in RICHARD III!

Winter may be gone (kinda), but the Winter of our Discontent is coming soon!

KAELEA ROVINSKY first performed with us in bloody-bloody Titus Andronicus.

RICHARD III is coming this July. In celebration of his recent disinterment (and re-interment), we wanted to know:

1. Where would you like to be buried and subsequently dug up in 500 years?
KAELEA:Hmmm. Well, I would be dumped at sea in a burial pod. I’d like to imagine that, five-hundred years from now, my semi-preserved corpse would escape the (poorly designed) pod, wash up on the beach, and terrorize some family trying to enjoy their vacation.

2. What would you do for the Crown? (no murdered relatives)
KAELEA:Optimally, as little as possible… However, with unlimited means; I would mount an Ocean 11 style heist (the one with Sinatra, not Clooney), and kidnap the Royal Corgis as leverage. I will eventually convince the Royals that the monarchy is merely symbolic, and objects are impermanent. We will sit down for a conciliatory brunch; where the Corgis will be served as a well-prepared frittata to the Queen and her Guard. At this point I would likely be tried for High Treason, get off with an insanity plea, and live out the rest of my days secluded from the outside world.

3. If you were locked up in the Tower of London, who would you want to be locked up with you?
KAELEA: I can only assume that I am locked up in the Tower of London due to the events from the previous question (See: Question 2). In that case I would like to be around someone who would not judge me too harshly for baking the Royal Corgis into frittatas. In this case, I would choose: Canadian Novelist, Margaret Atwood (circa 1967).

As long as you’re not a Corgi enthusiast, we guarantee you’ll love Kaelea’s upcoming performance!

Winter may be gone (kinda), but the Winter of our Discontent is coming soon!

LISA TOSTI first performed with us in last year’s Comedy of Errors (as the saucy Abbess, among other things).

RICHARD III is coming this July. In celebration of his recent disinterment (and re-interment), we wanted to know:

1. Where would you like to be buried and subsequently dug up in 500 years?
LISA: I would prefer to be cremated but if I were buried I’d want to be unearthed by science to study small, Italian women.

2. What would you do for the Crown? (no murdered relatives)
LISA: I would eat a chocolate cake (which I am allergic to because of the dairy).

3. If you were locked up in the Tower of London, who would you want to be locked up with you?
LISA: Benedict Cumberbatch! (exclamation mark added for emphasis)

Come see Lisa whip up a Cumber-batch of trouble for Tricky Dickie!

Titus’ Dinner Guests! – Adam Betz

Titus Andronicus is throwing a dinner party, and he’s inviting all his friends!

This is Adam’s fourth show with Unrehearsed, and he is in crazy love with it. “It has made me stop looking at Shakespeare as a historical figure, and more just like another guy. I finally get his jokes and have started understanding his personality through his writing.”

Adam is a black-belt (somewhat emeritus) in Tae Kwon Do and enjoys moonlit strolls on the beach, where he transforms into a murderous lycanthrope and devours the countryside.

And speaking of devouring the countryside!

TITUS’ DINNER PARTY
Will Adam MAKE the dinner, EAT the dinner, or BE the dinner?

He’s played Mark Antony in both Julius Caesar AND Antony & Cleopatra, he’s played Claudio AND Benedick, and has directed Midsummer Night’s Dream, As You Like It, Romeo & Juliet, and even Pericles.
