Cymbeline brings Shakespeare's wildest and most whimsical plots to the stage. Warriors, Gods, battles, a plucky heroine, an evil queen, haunting songs, and larger than life characters all clash in an epic adventure. The sheer size and strangeness of the play have led critics to dismiss it, and few Shakespeare festivals dare to produce it. But in Summer Shakespeare, we meet the challenges of Cymbeline head on, like Pokemon trainers leaping into battle! Students help cut the script, choose their characters, have a part in design, and take ownership of their production. With its fantastical plots and grandiose characters, Cymbeline has much in common with the art and drama of Japanese animation, and this summer, we present Shakespeare's buried treasure in the style of a crazy, colorful anime.
