Great River Shakespeare Festival invites the public to attend their Spring Design Preview event on Sunday, March 23 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. This event will showcase the preliminary work of GRSF’s design team for the Summer 2014 Season, in addition to casting announcements for the three plays: “The Merry Wives of Windsor,” “Hamlet and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead.”
Are you ready for a taste of summer? Join Great River Shakespeare Festival and their design team for glimpse into the process of planning and designing for Season 11!
The GRSF Designers gather in Winona for a weekend of intense collaboration to prepare as a team for summer 2014. Since all three shows are performed in repertory, it is critical for the designers to work together to synchronize plans. Through models, sketches, and presentations Spring Design Preview attendees will have the opportunity to peek into the plans that will be fully realized this summer on- stage.
The Season 11 Design Team Includes: R. Eric Stone (Set Design), Lonnie Alcaraz (Lighting Design), Margaret Weedon (Costume Design for The Merry Wives of Windsor), Louis Bird (Costume Design for Hamlet and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, Matthew Tibbs (Sound Design), Jack Forbes Wilson (Composer for The Merry Wives of Windsor), Paul Mason Barnes (Director for The Merry Wives of Windsor), James Edmondson (Director for Hamlet), Gale Childs Daly (Director for Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead).
