Exciting young theater company
Oct 2017 • Couples
Davis Shakespeare Ensemble is a company of young actors and directors that are doing some of the best theater in the region. They typically do four productions/year, about half of which are Shakespeare, and the remainder are musicals and drama. In addition, the company does a summer program for kids, with performances in the nearby UC Davis Arboretum. The company is surprisingly good at musicals, considering that a few of the players are amateurs, but they are excellent, experienced amateurs. Most of the ensemble are fairly recent graduates of major theater programs, and all are headed towards a professional career. The artistic co-directors, for example, are graduates of Harvard and UC Davis theater programs. Both are extraordinarily creative leaders. The recent production of Mid Summer's Night Dream, for example, is the funniest example of this play I've ever seen, and that includes productions at leading theaters such as The Globe (London) and Oregon Shakespeare Festival. This is a superb young company. Catch one of their performances if you can.
