About this Event
You will be sent a ZOOM link to join the reading.
This reading will be led by Jeffrey Swain. Jeffrey became active with the San Diego Shakespeare Society about 2010 when he appeared as The Sexton in an SDSS staged reading of “Much Ado About Nothing” under the direction of Jack Winans. He later appeared as the Ship’s Master in another SDSS staged reading of The Tempest. He has appeared twice in the North County Celebrity Sonnets, assisted as emcee during the Student Shakespeare Festival, and assisted with Celebrity Sonnets at the Old Globe.
Q: Do I have to read?
A: You are welcome to show up and just watch. We suspect, however, that it will look like too much fun for you to resist for long. A lot of newcomers don’t want to read initially but when they see how fun it is, they join in! But there is no pressure at all if you just want to watch and we have regular attendees who have never read.
Q: Can I act as a specific character or be in a particular scene?
A: That may be possible. Each evening has an assigned director who has planned what scenes to cover. If you are really anxious to act in a specific scene, talk to the director at the start and see what can be arranged. No guarantees, but if the scene is being done that night, it might be possible. All scenes are cast that night right before they are read, so usually, everyone who wants to act has the chance to do at least a small role.
Q: Who can participate?
A: Everyone! They are free and open to the public.
