Alumni and Students Work on “Lear” at Cal Shakes
A quartet consisting of two theatre and dance alumni and two current undergraduate students worked behind the scenes at California Shakespeare Theater this summer on the company’s production of Lear, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy by Marcus Gardley. The students were supported by Steven Schmidt, lecturer in theatre and dance, and technical director for Cal Shakes.
Alumni Ophena De La Rosa (B.A., theatre and dance, ‘22) served as a costume design assistant, while Brandon Yang (B.A., theatre and dance ‘22) was a production assistant. Current students Matthew Myers and Jessy Yang served as follow spot operator and set design assistant respectively.
