La Jolla Light-William Shakespeare’s “The Winter’s Tale,” directed by Ray Chambers, plays in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre at the Old Globe in Balboa Park through Nov. 14.
The production is a joint venture of The Old Globe and the University of San Diego Graduate Theatre Program that each year recruits students nationally to participate in an intensive two-year, year-round course of graduate study in classical theater.
Chambers, a classical actor and director with numerous regional theater credits (including “Hamlet,” “The Count of Monte Cristo,” “Richard III” and “King John”), has worked with The Globe on productions (including “Antony and Cleopatra,” “The Comedy of Errors,” “The School for Scandal,” and “Coriolanus”) since the mid 1980s.
Chambers served as director of the Master of Fine Arts/Professional Actor Training Program at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival from 2001-’09. No matter which of The Bard’s plays one is seeing, Chambers maintains it’s all in the eyes of the beholder.(Full Story)
