Cambridge American Stage Tour: Shakespeare’s “Measure for Measure”

Tuesday, September 17, 2013 at 7:30pm

Pealer Recital Hall, PAC 101 Braddock Road, Frostburg, MD, Frostburg

Cambridge American Stage Tour Brings Shakespeare’s “Measure for Measure” to Frostburg State University

The Cambridge American Stage Tour (CAST) will bring William Shakespeare’s “Measure for Measure” to Frostburg State University on Tuesday, Sept. 17, at 7:30 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of the Performing Arts Center.

Since 1999, CAST has sent the brightest theatrical talent from Cambridge University, England, across the Atlantic to perform Shakespeare to audiences in the United States.

Directed and produced entirely by members of the student body, this year’s performance is a dark comedy about mercy, justice and truth. In “Measure for Measure,” the Duke of Vienna leaves Angelo, a strict judge, in charge of the city while he is away on a diplomatic mission. Angelo assumes power with relentless spite, oppressing the people of Vienna in his determination to enforce the disregarded laws. He decides to make an example of Claudio, who impregnates his unofficial wife, by sentencing him to death. But, after meeting Claudio’s sister, the enchanting, soon-to-be nun Isabella, he cannot adhere to his own rules. Deceit, hypocrisy and scandal spiral out of control.

Tickets are $6 for students and $12 for the general public. Tickets can be purchased in Dunkle Hall room 311, or at the door on the night of the performance. For information or reservations, call 301-687-4221. For CAST information, visit www.castonline.org.

This event is being sponsored by the Department of English at Frostburg State University, with support from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the Office of the Provost and the FSU Foundation.
