I got lucky: I've been cast as Caliban in Northwest Classical Theatre Company's fall production of THE TEMPEST. Richard Reiten plays Prospero. Christy Conant directs.
My acting goals for this role are to 'find my clown' and enjoy physical freedom. I might also wear a big wig or shave my head, depending on which one--Grendel or Nosferatu--looks creepiest next to Prospero and Miranda, counterbalances Ariel, and is funny underfoot of Stephano (played by Tom Walton, who's not as short or delicate as I'd like him to be, for this!)
