Rep season at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival!
Twelfth Night- Woodrow plays Curio, one of the officers and also the saxophone. Understudy to Malvolio.
Miracle Worker- Understudy to Captain Keller.
Much Ado About Nothing- Woodrow plays Benedick.
Much Ado About Nothing [1598/99] is one of Shakespeare's most popular comedies, in large part for two memorably witty characters, Benedick [Woodrow Proctor] and Beatrice [Katie Fanning], who spar in a "merry war" of wit throughout the play, each criticizing the other's faults and denying a romantic attraction that everyone else sees plainly. Mr. Proctor and Ms. Fanning handle the repartee with articulate confidence, scoring points against one another much to the delight of other characters and the audience. By no means alone in their facility with language, crisp physical antics, adroit posturing and facial expressiveness, Mr. Proctor and Ms. Fanning set a high bar that their six acting companions reach with equal aplomb.
