Stratford 2011-Is it Too Early to Plan?

Even though the Oberon group has yet to make its annual trip to Stratford, Ontario to attend the 2010 season (we're going in August), the 2011 season has just been announced (only about three hours ago, I think). Maybe some planning for our 2011 trip can begin now.

The 2011 season will include four plays by Shakespeare (that mysterious playwright we all love). There will be Twelfth Night (with Brian Dennehy returning to play Sir Toby Belch), Richard III (with an interesting casting choice of Seana McKenna as Richard), The Merry Wives of Windsor, and Titus Andronicus.

There will be two musicals: Camelot (which has been done there before) and Jesus Christ, Superstar.

Other plays on offer will be an adaptation of Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath, The Misanthrope by Molliere (with Brian Bedford directing and appearing), Harold Pinter's The Homecoming, and two Canadian plays (Hosana by Michel Tremblay and The Little Years by John Mighton).

Other casting choices have also been announced. I won't list them here, but the lineup seems to me to be outstanding! For more details, you can view today's official press release here.

It should be a great season. I can hardly wait.
