Merry Wives of Windsor play to be performed virtually

July 3, 2020

For the first time in its 10-year history, Shakespeare in the Park in Lethbridge has been cancelled. Instead, on Friday evening the group has planned a special virtual production. 

The Lethbridge Shakespeare performance society will be producing The Merry Wives of Windsor, directed and produced online. 

"Usually when you see a live play you see everybody — the whole stage and everybody is interacting with one another. With our production, you'd probably see four or five different cameras. Every actor that would be speaking would be (in) one particular area. (And then) it would switch to another person speaking, so that way nobody is taking attention off of somebody else," says secretary of Shakespeare in the Park, Cole Fetting.

You can access a link for to the performance via YouTube, or on the Lethbridge Shakespeare Performance Society’s Facebook page.
