Casting Announced for Shakespeare in the Park in Bergen County!

Teaneck, NJ: For the second summer, Black Box Studios will present free productions of Shakespeare’s classics in various locations throughout Bergen County.

The core company of both shows includes repeat players from last year: Michael Gardiner (Iago), Sara Giacomini (Romeo), Danielle MacMath (Benvolio, Emilia), Ellen Revesz (The Nurse), Benjamin Shanblatt (Chorus), Larissa Terese (Juliet, Bianca), Zach Abraham (Brabantio/Lodovico), Sam Cancelarich (Senator/Ensemble), and Jason Felix (Tybalt). They are joined by newcomers Stacy Cancelarich (Lady Capulet), Cassandra Guglielmo (Peter, Desdemona), Alex Hughes (Mercutio, Cassio), Kentrell Loftin (Friar Laurence, Othello), Arthur Gregory Pugh (Lord Capulet, Montano), and Conor Wilson (Pairs, Roderigo).

Want to join this stellar cast? This year, there is a special performance opportunity for teens ages 16-19: The Summer Shakespeare Experience!
