Meet the Cast of Midsummer! Spotlight on Connor Scott (Lysander)

June 29, 2019

We're delighted to have Connor back for another year with Classics on the Rocks, especially after his Shakes Day 2019 performance(s) as Hamlet and Benedick. He is one of two Connors playing members of the lovers' quadrangle in Midsummer, and is locked in an eternal battle for the title of "Connor 1."

 

He is definitely not seven years old. 

 

 

What's your #1 bucket list role, Shakespeare or otherwise? 

Richard II ("Now is this golden crown like a deep well / that owes two buckets, filling one another...").

 

What do you do when you're not acting - or what would you do if you weren't an actor?

Scenic & theatrical design, Architectural design, Write

 

What's your most embarrassing childhood memory (that you're willing to share)?

For a whole year of daycare, I exclusively gave my age as seven years old. I was very much four.

 

If a movie was being made of your life which actor would you choose to play you? What's the movie called?

Gene Wilder - A Quest for Pizza

 

 

Join us this summer for one of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies filled with frolicking fairies, a ridiculous troupe of actors, and the most epic love triangle ever seen.

 

A Midsummer Night's Dream performs July 12, 13, 19, 20 at 7pm and July 21 at 5pm at the Alchemical Theatre Laboratory.  Tickets may be purchased in advance here

 

About Classics on the Rocks:

Shakespeare doesn't have to be complicated and it's our mission at Classics on the Rocks to make classical theatre accessible, exciting, palatable, and fun for everyone - whether you're brand new to Shakespeare or have read the canon cover to cover. 

 

At Classics on the Rocks, we believe that just as whiskey doesn't need anything more than rocks to tame its bite. Shakespeare doesn't need fancy concepts, modernizations, frilly costumes, or big sets to make it relatable. All you need are talented actors who trust the text and tell the story. It's classics served simply on the rocks.
