The lovely Alexandra (Ally) Doman shows off some of her wide range as an actress in this summer's production of The Winter's Tale, from a somber representative of the Oracle of Apollo to an unlucky-in-love country girl in the second act's pastoral comedy, to the gentleman on the street who relays the pivotal moment of the act five finale.
She's also a singer, and you'll get to hear a bit of her talent in that department in The Winter's Tale.

Learning from all the fresh and fab talent in the cast!
Featuring a mad king, an exit pursued by a bear, and three of Shakespeare's strongest female characters, The Winter's Tale is a lesser-known, lesser-told story that gives us both tragedy and comedy, love and loss, winter and spring.
The Winter's Tale performs July 20, 21, 27, 28 at 7pm and July 29 at 5pm at the Alchemical Theatre Laboratory. Tickets may be purchased in advance here.
