SV Shakespeare wraps up inaugural season
AS A SPECIAL TREAT for Halloween, the Sonoma Valley Shakespeare Company offer up the thrilling and spooky tale of “Doctor Faustus” on Oct. 27.
In honor of All Hallow’s Eve, the Sonoma Valley Shakespeare Company bring the devilish story of “Doctor Faustus” for a 7:30 p.m. performance on Saturday, Oct. 27, at the Sonoma Valley High School Little Theater for a special price of $7. That same night, the company will also announce its lineup for the 2013 season.
Written by Christopher Marlow, a contemporary of William Shakespeare, “Doctor Faustus” follows a man determined to uncover the mysteries of the universe, even if it means selling his soul to the devil. Thrilling and spooky, the show is perfectly suited for the Halloween weekend.
The Sonoma Valley Shakespeare Company was founded by Artistic Director Aidan O’Reilly, a Valley native. In addition to “Doctor Faustus,” the inaugural season includes Shakespeare’s “As You Like It” and “Julius Caesar” shows performed in repertory.
“As You Like It,” which O’Reilly will direct, wraps up on Nov. 3. “Julius Caesar,” directed by Bradford, ends on Nov. 2. O’Reilly’s “Doctor Faustus” can be seen last on Nov. 1. Shows on Thursday, Friday and Saturday take place at 7:30 p.m.; Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m.
Each show will begin with live music from local musicians. Tickets are $10 for students, $15 for adults and must be purchased at the door.
