OTE presents Shakespeare in the Hills 2019
Directed by Aurora Culver

Rehearsals and performances at
the Laguna Hills Community Center
25555 Alicia Pkwy, Laguna Hills, CA

Auditions May 13th and 14th by appointment. Callbacks May 15th by invitation.

Show rehearses May 23th -July 18th.

Performances will be July 19th-August 3rd, 2019.

Actors not only perform but also act as crew members. Everyone is expected to be present for his/her performance evenings and participate in setting up the show. We must set-up and breakdown the set each night. It is a team effort where each person is assigned a few tasks. It’s a lot of fun!

“O powerful Love, that in some respects makes a beast a man, in some other a man a beast.”

Sir John Falstaff and his entourage are wearing out their welcome in Windsor. The city isn’t big enough for his antics and appetites, especially as he sets about improving his financial situation by wooing Mistress Page and Mistress Ford. Meanwhile, Mistress Page’s lovely daughter, Anne, is under romantic siege from several local admirers. Double-meanings, disguises and dirty laundry abound as the men try to get what they want, but it’s the women of Windsor who pull the strings in this story…

Originally set in Shakespeare’s native land and time, this comedy shares traditions with today’s well-loved sitcoms. With its dexterous mingling of verbal and physical humor, we’ve brought it into the era of 90’s television, bringing elements from the show Friends and many more!
