Door Shakespeare Presents ‘How Shakespeare Won the West’ Play Reading

There’s a folder holding a dozen head shots (DShakes Headshots) in the folder.

How Shakespeare Won the West by Richard Nelson will be Door Shakespeare’s next play reading on Oct. 14, 7 pm, at the Woodwalk Gallery, 6746 Cty G in Egg Harbor. 

“As with our first reading last month, part of the challenge – and the fun – comes in securing the right actors for these very colorful characters that Nelson offers us,” said Michael Stebbins, Door Shakespeare’s producing artistic director and this reading’s director. “We are bringing a really exciting group together to tell a story that has a lot of laughs, a lot of heart and a lot of history.” 

The play tells the story of a troupe of actors seeking fortune and fame by performing Shakespeare to ’49ers as they head west during the Gold Rush. The cast features Door Shakespeare managing director Amy Ensign, Neil Brookshire, Scott McKenna Campbell, Anne Herring, Rayne Kleinofen, Steve Koehler, Alan Kopischke, Jarrod Langwinski, Mark Moede, Katherine Norman, JJ Smith, Michael Stebbins and Ryan Zierk.

The reading of How Shakespeare Won the West is free, but donations are appreciated. Seating is first-come, first-served. The Door Shakespeare Reading Series is sponsored, in part, by a grant from the Green Bay Packers Foundation.
