The Merchant of Venice
A Classic Comedy by William Shakespeare
Directed by Joseph Lopez
Assistant Director: Amy Yurwit
Stage Manager: Kaylin Berglund
Doña Ana Repertory Theatre, a new theatre coalition based in Las Cruces, presents THE MERCHANT OF VENICE by William Shakespeare.
In 16th Century Venice, a deeply segregated society, the wealthy merchant Antonio (Patrick Payne) borrows money from the much-abused moneylender Shylock (Algernon D'Ammassa) in order to help Bassanio (Darin Cabot) woo his love. When the deal goes bad, Shylock seeks a terrible revenge, for which the merchant may have to pay his life.
A cast of 13 local artists takes on one of Shakespeare's most challenging comedies in a fast-moving traveling production premiering at the Las Cruces Community Theatre, 313 N. Main Street, downtown Las Cruces.
Shows are July 9-12, all at 8:00 PM. The performance will run about 2 hours with one intermission.
This show is NOT part of the normal 2015/16 season. Tickets are $12 general admission which may be purchased at the boxoffice one hour before each performance or online. Doors open at 7:30.
