Seattle Shakespeare Company's Wooden O free outdoor productions of King Lear and The Merry Wives of Windsor launch July 12 - Volunteer Park hosts performances July 14 & 15

Seattle Shakespeare Company presents free outdoor Wooden O productions of King Lear and The Merry Wives of Windsor, starting Thursday, July 12. Both productions will appear at park venues throughout King and Pierce Counties (see schedule below). This summer marks the 25th Anniversary for Wooden O productions in the parks.

George Mount, Artistic Director of Seattle Shakespeare Company and founder of Wooden O, will direct King Lear featuring David Pichette in the title role. R. Hamilton Wright will play Gloucester, and Vanessa Miller, Jonelle Jordan, and Nabilah S. Ahmed will play Lear's daughters Goneril, Regan, and Cordelia.

London during the swinging 1960s comes to the parks in Corey McDaniel's production of The Merry Wives of Windsor. The production features Charles Leggett playing Falstaff, Eleanor Moseley as Mistress Page, Annie Lareau as Mistress Ford, Reginald Jackson as Master Ford, and Vince Brady as Master Page.

Set designs for both productions will be by Craig B. Wollam. Costumes for King Lear will be by Jocelyne Fowler and Margaret Toomey will design costumes for The Merry Wives of Windsor. Evan Mosher and Robertson Witmer will design sound for King Lear and Kyle Thompson will design sound for The Merry Wives of Windsor.

Wooden O performances are free and open to the public, but donations are encouraged after the show. For more information, visit http://www.seattleshakespeare.org/

[NOTE: King Lear will be performed in Seattle on Saturday, July 14 at 2pm at Volunteer Park Amphitheatre and on Sunday, July 29 at 6pm at Seattle Center Fisher Pavilion. The Merry Wives of Windsor will be performed in Seattle on Sunday, July 15 at 7pm at Volunteer Park Amphitheatre and on Sunday, July 29 at 2pm at Seattle Center Fisher Pavilion.]

King Lear
An aging monarch's last act could destroy his kingdom. After ruling for many years, Lear decides to divide his lands and wealth between his daughters. Underestimating their love and loyalty, Lear finds everything that defined him as a king ripped from his hands. Only after wandering purposeless and tossed about in a storm of pain and madness, the once mighty ruler begins to discover his own humanity.

The Merry Wives of Windsor
On the make in the sleepy suburb of Windsor, the fat knight John Falstaff hopes to score a pretty penny by seducing two of the town's wealthy wives, Mistress Page and Mistress Ford. But it's the women who know how to play the game better. They soon orchestrate a scheme to scam the scammer. A warm-hearted and antic romp with some of Shakespeare's most clever and comic characters.
