CAMDEN – The Camden Shakespeare Festival, in association with the Ziggurat Theater Ensemble and the Camden Public Library, presents the enchanting comedy “Aquitania” outdoors in the Camden Amphitheater starting Wednesday, July 21. The show is sponsored by Bath Savings Institution.
A librarian is transported to a strange country where she combines her intelligence with a villain with a bowler hat. A magic cake and an ancient board game hold the secrets as our heroine adopts a new kind of logic to save the day. A trio of beautiful mermaids adds to the enchantment with a score of jazzy French songs.
The Maine-based cast of actors includes Gordon Adams, John Burstein, Emily Grotz, Lily Hoskins, Whip Hubley, Dana Legawiec, Dashiell Legawiec, Lyra Legawiec, Laura Maclean, Kathleen Nation and Maddy Sweet. They are joined by guest artists Noelle Elise Crites, Kieran Danaan, Sarah Durn and Audree Stephens. The costumes are by Robert Velasquez and Anne Collins.
