Columbia College Chicago Theatre Department alumni talents are featured in Strawdog Theatre‘s new production of William Shakespeare’s classic romance Cymbeline, running January 13-February 25 at the Factory Theatre, 1623 W. Howard, in Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood on the border between Chicago and Evanston.
Alumnus Sam Hubbard ’12, a graduate of the Columbia College Theatre Department’s Acting Program, and former Acting student Michaela Petro are in the cast. Both Hubbard and Petro are Strawdog company members.
Former Theatre Department student Spencer Ryan Diedrick is the show’s assistant director.
Shakespeare. You’ve heard of him. This play has all the vicious insults, bloody blades, cross-dressed ladies and compromised bedchambers you’ve come to expect from the man. But then things get nuts. It’s a no-holds-barred epic, a dark fairy tale set off by a king’s rash verdict and a princess who won’t stand for her man’s wrongful banishment.
