Birds

  • Rotunda Theatre, Theological Hall (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Michelle will be featured in the role of Messenger and Chorus Member in the Dan School of Drama and Music's Major Musical Production of "Birds”.

Jennifer Wise, who has translated Aristophanes several times (including, most recently, the version of Lysistrata produced by Bard on the Beach in BC), has been commissioned to write a new version of the work that will feature all of her trademark wit and ingenuity. Aristophanes’s original play, first performed in 414 BCE, told the story of two Athenian citizens, who, fed up with the corruption of city life, decide to build a new and better society among the wild birds to the north. However, it becomes clear that it is not so easy to make a new kingdom in your own image while avoiding the vices of tyranny.

Our version will be set in Eastern Ontario and will feature two Queen’s students who set off into the wild areas north of Kingston to locate the Kingfisher and his subjects in Loonland. The local birds will be represented in masks designed by Clelia Scala and costumes designed by Laura Dionne. The songs in the play will be adaptations of rousing traditional folk songs performed under the music direction of Darrell Bryan. Directing the show will be Professor Craig Walker, Director of the Dan School of Drama and Music.
