Meet Lesley!

Meet the 2011 Summer Festival Company! I am excited to begin this series of posts to introduce you to our company. This is an extraordinary group of actors, and I just know you're going to love them. There will be thirteen actors involved this summer, one stage manager, and one fabulous intern working on a total of four productions, which run over a period of five weeks.

Our key for the summer production titles is:
A Midsummer Night's Dream = MID
The Merchant of Venice = VEN
The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) = WKS
Theseus and the Minotaur = KIDS

Lesley Berkowitz (MID: Puck, Hippolyta; WKS: "Jess")
(MID: Puck, Hippolyta; WKS: Lesley, or the "Jess" track)
Lesley is pleased as punch to be returning to Schroon Lake this season. With ADK Shakes, Lesley has performed in 3 Henry VI (Warwick), As You Like It (Touchstone), Romeo and Juliet (Tybalt), and Macbeth (Malcolm). She received her BA from Muhlenberg College and has a certificate in Physical Theatre from Dell'Arte International. This past year, Lesley has created pieces in Cedar Falls, Iowa; Portland, Oregon; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and Denver, Colorado ranging from puppet plays, performance art, and traditional staged works. Favorites include the Narrator in Robin Hood at Northwest Children's Theatre Company, Adolf in an all-female production of Strindberg's Creditors, Bob Acres in a drag production of The Rivals with To The Wall Productions, the Boy in Grotowski inspired by Grimm with Vagabond Acting Troupe, and Chicklet in Psycho Beach Party.

If you love Lesley as much as we do, you can adopt her this season! Or you can also adopt her mischievous character, Puck and all the fairies of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
