This is Primrose Players 3rd summer Shakespeare productions and this year we've chosen "Measure for Measure", directed by Sofia Rybin.

Show dates will begin June 22nd and will be Friday-Sunday performances; our closing performance will be on July 27. There may be a few pay-what-you-can Tuesdays thrown in to the mix. Performances will be in and around the Seattle area - for performances held outside city limits we can help organize carpooling!

Rehearsals will begin sometime mid-April and will ramp up as we head into May/June and approach our performance dates.
This is Shakespeare in the park and Shakespeare on a shoestring budget; all monies earned that do not need to go toward park permits and sets will be distributed amongst our players as a gesture of good faith.

We are a jovial company of players, passionate about Shakespeare and open to feed back and new ideas!


Other details:
There is parking available at the audition locations and signs will be posted to guide you.
