Auditions (Red Deer): Bard on Bower 2013 – Prime Stock Theatre

Prime Stock Theatre presents BARD on BOWER 2013:

Romeo & Juliet and As You Like It performed in repertory!

 Set in 1930’s Canada, As You Like It places the forest of Arden in the backwoods of Northern Ontario / Quebec.  Follow Rosalind and Orlando as they seek to define the roles that men and women play best when they woo.  In a time when women sought to express their independence and re-define their role, the spunky Rosalind seeks new adventure and true love bourn out of mutual respect.  Smile, as she lives the rustic life amidst the lumberjacks and Group of 7 painters that roam the woods.  Cross dressing and mistaken identities abound in the wilds of Algonquin; its fun for the entire family!

 “I pray you, do not fall in love with me, for I am falser than vows made in wine” – Rosalind

 In a world of hot sun and fiery Latin passion Romeo & Juliet meet at a Day of the Dead celebration and discover the dangers that forbidden love brings to themselves and their families.  Under the tutelage of a well-meaning friar, the pair seeks to escape the mistrust that blinds their families and brings ruin to their friends.  Now they must hide their love until a new dawn brings the promise of a future together . . . or perish in the darkness of a hate that divides.

“For now, these hot days, is the mad blood stirring” – Benvolio
