Meet the Cast of Midsummer! Spotlight on Jacqueline Wladis (Snout/Wall)
Jackie has been an active member of the After Work Theater community for years and is, delightfully, branching out into the Classics on the Rocks team as of this season! She has a spirit and energy that is infectious, and is one of the more hilariously eager Walls that the tale of Pyramus and Thisbe has ever seen.
What's your #1 bucket list role, Shakespeare or otherwise?
It's a tie between Ophelia in Hamlet and Eurydice in Hadestown.
What do you do when you're not acting - or what would you do if you weren't an actor?
I'm the Commerce Manager for Condé Nast.
What's your most embarrassing childhood memory (that you're willing to share)?
I had this Disney princess underwear set and I pooped my pants when I was 4 while I was on a play date at someone else's house. I'm still upset that I ruined my Esmerelda underwear.
If a movie was being made of your life which actor would you choose to play you? What's the movie called?
The movie would be Delusions of A Disney Princess and I mean ideally Rachel Bloom since she basically already made a TV show about me, but I'm flexible.
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.
