2017 and Others

Notes on three summers:


Summer of 2015.

Jackie Pualani Johnson’s Shakespeare Pacifica! sponsored me for eight weeks in Hilo, Hawai’i. Rob Hunt directed an excellent production of Measure For Measure with the Hilo Community Players. I played Froth and Barnardine for a dozen performances set in New Orleans (I learned a Cajun dialect). I also played Shakespeare before the performances. At the University of Hawai’i I taught stage combat workshops, and presented an acting Master Class to summer students and interested people.

My wife Lola taught a playwriting workshop that has grown into the productive, Skype friendly, East Hawai’i Playwrights Group.


Summer of 2016.

The Denver Botanical Gardens sponsored an experimental program called Midsummer Nights. About ten groups of 15 garden visitors were docent guided throughout the gardens to see plants and flowers particular to Shakespeare’s plays and his Cotswold upbringing. As Shakespeare I met them at tours end in the Oak Grove. This experiment was so successful the Gardens are considering offering it again Summer 2017.


This same summer both the Colorado Shakespeare Garden and the Boulder Museum of History offered programs in conjunction with the tour of the Folger Library’s First Folio of Shakespeare to Norlin Library in Boulder.
