Advice To The Players, Sandwich’s Own Shakespeare company, is proud to present their Summer Mainstage Production of William Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, August 1 - 11, in Quimby Park and in The Sandwich Town Hall Theater.
Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure is a commentary on the trifecta of power, sex, and morality: centering around the fate of a pious sister forced into a difficult situation, a moralistic leader who does not walk the talk he preaches, and a Duke in disguise. Trickery abounds and hard issues are tackled in this lesser-known of Shakespeare’s ‘comedies.’
The production will star new and familiar ATTP actors, including company founder Caroline Nesbitt, Luke Haskell, Ellie Bartz, and introducing Jake Berger, Salvatore Constantino, Alicia Edgar, Pauline de Gourcuff, and Alexei du Perier. The production will be directed by ATTP’s former Artistic Director Andrew Codispoti. It is a very timely production for the ‘me too’ era that you don’t want to miss!
Tickets are available online at www.advicetotheplayers.org or by calling 603-284-7115. Adult, Senior and Student tickets are available. Preview performance in Quimby Park at 5:30 pm on August 1st is $10 for all tickets. There will also be a special free performance at Eagle Square in Concord, August 9th at 5:30 pm.
Additional Performances at Quimby Park are August 2nd, 4th, 7th, 10th & 11th at 5:30 pm: at the Sandwich Town Hall Theatre August 3rd at 7:30 pm and August 8th at 2 pm. ATTP’s 20th Anniversary Gala will follow the August 4th Performance— tickets can be purchased individually to both events or you can buy a package. August 10th you can treat yourself to a double feature and bring a picnic to Measure for Measure and then head inside Town Hall to see the Yeoman’s Fund production of Elderville. In the case of rain, all Quimby Park dates will move inside to the Sandwich Town Hall Theater.

Based in Sandwich, NH, ATTP has spent the last 20 years bringing award-winning productions of William Shakespeare’s richly passionate plays to life while introducing new generations to live theater.
