• TITUS ANDRONICUS

    July 21 – August 8, 2016

    by William Shakespeare (adapted by Jonathan Margheim)

    Springs Ensemble Theatre explores a different facet of William Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus with an all-female cast. Titus Andronicus, Shakespeare’s earliest tragedy and widely acknowledged as his most violent play, gets a new outlook. Spearheaded by lauded local performer Amy Brooks as the war-weary Titus, the production offers an opportunity for some of Colorado Springs’ most talented actors to dominate the SET stage.

    Join SET as we give fresh life to a well-known story. Titus Andronicus (Brooks) returns from a decade-long war victorious, but with twenty-one dead sons. To appease their ghosts, he sacrifices the son of his long-time enemy, Tamora, Queen of the Goths (Crystal Carter). She vows revenge and the resulting spiral of violence threatens the fabric of Rome and exposes just how far two people will go to defend their families.

    Directed by SET ensemble member, Jenny Maloney, Titus Andronicus is set in a world where Rome is a shell of its former state. Bringing this world to life is a gifted cast, including performances from local artists: Amy Brooks, Kala Roquemore, Taylor Grzesiek, Jessica Parnello, Michelle Pantle, Alayna Rose Alonge, Brittany Merritt, Laura Fuller, Alicia Franks, Erica Erickson, Milagros Burney, Saundra Bouchie, Kendra Shock and Cheyenne York. Titus Andronicus also includes intense performances from ensemble members Jillmarie Peterson, Brianna G. Pilon, and Holly Haverkorn.
