Shelby Kohalmy plays “Bardolph” in The Merry Wives of Windsor, this year’s SHAKESPEARE IN THE HILLS‘ production opening Friday, July 19 at the Laguna Hills Community Center.
How is this character like you? Different? Both tend to be fairly low key and participating but in the background.
When did you first perform? First performance was as a “munchkin” in the Wizard of Oz in elementary school.
What’s your perfect Sunday afternoon look like? Sitting on my balcony with a good book, music in the background.
ACTOR’S BIO: Shelby Kohalmy “Bardolph”
I’m a 26 year old introvert looking to grow as a person. I wanted to do this show because my parents let me stay up past my bed time to watch “Friends” as a kid well before I was old enough to understand it. I’m looking forward to bringing “Bardolph” to life in a Gunther – like fashion.
“O powerful Love, that in some respects makes a beast a man, in some other a man a beast.”
This summer, join SHAKESPEARE IN THE HILLS for one of Shakespeare’s most hilarious comedies, The Merry Wives of Windsor.
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!
Bring a blanket or your lawn chair, bring your meal and make it a picnic event for SHAKESPEARE IN THE HILLS’ outdoor performance presented by On The Edge Theatre Productions.
