Last night was the final gathering of our Comedia Del’Arte troupe for the season and it was amazing! After much mead and merriment, we set about to do a read thru of next year’s performance for the Florida Renaissance Festival. Our leader, Richard, penned an abridged version of Shakespeare’s The Tempest for our troupe, and we sat back and enjoyed each others portrayal of the characters.
I was happy to find myself cast as the comic relief of the piece- and playing what I do best, a drunk! My character, Stefano, is usually performed by a man- but not in this production- “Stephanna” will make people laugh this time. I can’t wait until next December when we will begin rehearsing for the season.
Merry Meet~ Merry Part~ And Merry Meet Again!
