Promenaders need plan b

Posted By on Fri, Jan 29, 2010 at 2:57 PM

Royal Shakespeare Company brought us a taste of promenade staging during their 2007 residency at Davidson College when they staged Pericles and shepherded the audience around Duke Family Performance Hall as scenes changed. Children’s Theatre of Charlotte is doing much the same when they open the Bard’s As You Like It on February 19. All ImaginOn’s a stage as Rosalind chases after her banished Orlando in hopes of winning his love. Under Matt Cosper’s direction, actors and audience journey beyond the usual confines of McColl Family Theatre and Wachovia Playhouse into the public spaces of ImaginOn, so parents need to don comfy walking shoes if they wish to keep pace with their anklebiters as the action unfolds.

One other obstacle has been added to your steeplechase. All the originally scheduled 7:30 p.m. performances of As You Like It are already SOLD OUT through February 27, and the press release we received earlier this week had not yet specified any additional dates and times. Nor were there any online updates when we checked this morning.

What we do know is that tickets for additional performances will go on sale February 8. So it’s a good idea to keep your browser tuned to the Children’s Theatre of Charlotte website for further info – and pounce on those tickets when they become available.
