Marin Shakespeare Company - Hey nonny nonny and wild Shakespeare!--Pacific Sun

As You Like It

Directed by James Dunn

Celia and Rosalind from As You Like It, Marin Shakespeare  Company 2001

Producer's Perspective:

One of the delights of this production was the expansive, charming set designed by Ken Rowland. It was one of the largest sets we'd ever built, created to allow room for two huge rolling wagons that became the Forest of Arden. Symmetrical, stylish and beautiful, it was an elegant setting for one of Shakespeare's most charming comedies.

The set was graced by a wonderful cast. Marcia Pizzo as Rosalind put in many hours of preparation and it all paid off. She was well matched by Jason Heil, a dashing and romantic Orlando. Alexandra Matthew turned in a sweetly wry Celia. Peter Schmuckal as Touchstone, Scott Coopwood as Jacques, Thomas Lynch as Corin, Bob Borwick as Silvius, Lauren English as Phoebe and Marie Shell as Audrey all shone. About a dozen canine actors auditioned to play Corin's dog, with the chosen thespian, Maggie, turning in an appropriately subtle performance.
