I've fallen a little behind on my introductions this weekend. Oops! I've been battling a horrible cold and terrified that I won't have a voice for the performances or that I'll infect the entire cast on Wednesday night. Today, however, things are looking up! And now, let's get back on track introducing you to rest of the cast. There's still several people I know you're looking forward to meeting.
So without further ado, I'm pleased to introduce you to Shayna! She is brand new to ADK Shakes this year and it is such a pleasure to have her on board for The Justice Project. Shayna is one of those people who just exudes beautiful, positive energy. We met up to run some lines and talk about the rehearsal process and characters the other day. What a lovely chat (and coffee) we had! Shayna is observant and intelligent, open to discussion and willing to take chances. She is going to be an Isabella to reckon with, I can tell.
Do not miss this performance! Catch Isabella on Friday nights this week and next (and the 2nd Gentleman as well). How many Isabellas have you seen doubling in another role? Shayna is all over this. She is also tackling three roles in Merchant. Click here to reserve your tickets now!
(MERCHANT: Salarino, Stephano, Balthasar; MEASURE: Isabella, 2nd Gentleman)
ADK SHAKES debut
Shayna Vercillo hails from Tucson, AZ, received her BFA in acting from Oklahoma City University and now officially calls New York City home. She is thrilled to be joining the Adirondack Shakespeare Company and getting to work with such a wonderful cast and crew! Favorite roles include Hypatia (Misalliance) with Oklahoma's Shakespeare in the Park, Angelina (The Angelina Project), CB's Sister (Dog Sees God), and Truly Scrumptious (Chitty Chitty…!) with Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma. She would like to thank her friends and family for all their continued love and support!
