The Upper Peninsula Shakespeare Festival presents Chekhov’s “The Seagull”

July 28, 2019

Marquette, MI – Please join us on Thursday, August 1st 2019 at 7:30 pm-9:00 pm as the Upper Peninsula Shakespeare Festival returns with Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull, performed as a fully staged reading at the Marquette Regional History Center. Chekhov’s beloved and classic ‘slice of life’ play proves the long-standing formula of comedy equaling tragedy plus time. Chock full of sumptuous characters portrayed by local favorites, our story studies the frustrating facets of bitter dissatisfaction, the ridiculousness of the human spirit and ultimately the inevitable and ironic satire of it all. That’s The Seagull – that’s life!

Cast includes Jessica “Red” Bays, Thomas Laitinen, John Sarkela, Alastar Dimitrie, Lilith Kontos, B.G Bradley, Christopher Scott Leith, Monet Chartier, Hanna Numinen, Shane Vincent and Chet DeFonso.

Adaptation translated by Upper Peninsula Shakespeare Festival Executive Director Alastar Dimitrie.

Tickets are $10 for students, $12 for seniors and $20 for general admission and can be purchased at www.upshakes.org. This is a fundraiser for two phenomenal non-profits. Proceeds benefit both the Marquette Regional History Center and Upper Peninsula Shakespeare Festival and go towards mounting a full production of The Seagull in the summer of 2020. Call Artistic Director Jamie Weeder at 906.869.1456 for more info.
