The Hamilton College Theater Department announces the Fall Theater Production, King Stag, written by Carlo Gozzi and directed by Professor of Theater Craig Latrell.
Performances will run Friday, Nov. 2 and Saturday, Nov. 3, at 7:30 p.m., and Wednesday, Nov. 7 – Saturday, Nov. 10, at 7:30 p.m. There are two additional performances at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3 and Saturday, Nov. 10. All performances will take place in the Romano Theater within the Kennedy Center for Theater and the Studio Arts on the Hamilton College Campus.
King Stag, written in 1762, is a fairy tale about love, death, and transformation. Gozzi is best known today as the writer of the plays that inspired the Puccini and Prokofiev operas "Turandot" and "The Love of Three Oranges." His theatrical fables turn ancient myths and legends into colorful theatrical tales with morals, borrowing elements from different cultures to create new, fabulist worlds.
Alongside live actors, this production is populated with Bunraku-style puppets designed by Sara Walsh, visiting assistant professor of theater. Set Design is by Jeff Larson; costume designer is Isabelle Fields; sound designer, Tyler Kieffer; and lighting designer is Derek Van Heel.
King Stag features a cast of 21 Hamilton students, including Emily Aviles '19 as King Deramo, Jake Bolster '19 as Clarice, Noelani Stevenson '19 as Tartaglia, Robbie Lane '20 as Angela, Taylor Wallace '19 as Brighella, Jack Clark '21 as Smeraldina, and Jojo Reinhart-Jones '20 as Truffaldino.
Tickets for the performance are $7 for the public and $4 for students. Seating is limited and reservations are strongly encouraged. For tickets or more information, call the Theater Box Office at 315-859-4969. Suitable for all ages.
