Since 2002, the Merced ShakespeareFest has performed one or two Shakespeare plays each summer on the stage of the Merced Open Air Theater in Applegate Park under the helm of founder and director Heike Hambley. Again she is getting ready to audition and then direct the comedy “Much Ado About Nothing” which was the very first play to be performed in 2002.

Currently Heike is also rehearsing at Playhouse Merced in “Lysistrata” which opened on May 6. She collaborates with Hatchwork Theater Project putting on performances of small edgy pieces in summer and fall.

About the Merced Shakespeare Festival:
Merced’s Summer Shakespeare festival is fun for the whole family and it is free of charge. It happens during daylight hours in the beautiful green Applegate Park in Merced, California.

Quality, fast-paced performances with a minimal set in an abridged version, usually 90 minutes long are the order of the day!

Upcoming Auditions…
Auditions for Much Ado About Nothing
will be held Saturday, May 14, 2011 at 10 am at Playhouse Merced. Brush up your Shakespeare!

Brush up your Shakespeare,
Start quoting him now.
Brush up your Shakespeare
And the women you will wow.
If your goil is a Washington Heights dream
Treat the kid to “A Midsummer Night Dream.”
If she fights when her clothes you are mussing,
What are clothes? “Much Ado About Nussing.”
If she says your behavior is heinous
Kick her right in the “Coriolanus.”
Brush up your Shakespeare
And they’ll all kowtow,
And they’ll all kowtow,
And they’ll all kowtow.
