Genre: Classical, Drama

When Prince Pericles discovers the dread answer to King Antioch's riddle, he flees for his life- straight into famine, shipwreck, murder, brothels, love, and fatherhood. All the ingredients for a spectacular Odyssey-like adventure!

Pericles is ANIMUS Theatre Company's plunge into the works of the master, William Shakespeare. We're very excited to be diving to this lesser-known Shakespeare piece with renowned Shakespeare and opera director Edward Berkeley!

Fortunately for you, none of us will be doing any opera singing for this show, but we will be wowing with a range of tricks! You can expect to see some sword wielding, riddle solving, magic working, ship sailing, back stabbing, family re-uniting, love in love, and lots more. Plus the one thousand roles in this show are played by a company of only 11 actors! Ok, so maybe there aren't one thousand roles, but it's true that each actor will be transforming into a variety of characters from this epic Shakespearean adventure for your viewing pleasure!

Jeff Todesco, Amy Northup, Carrie Walsh, Paul Bomba*, Rory Hammond, Dorien Makloghi*, Matt Cusack*, Sebastian Stimman, Nicole Starret, Jack Sochet*, Emily Ellis
