UCA's Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre casts Festival

The Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre at UCA has completed casting for 2008 Festival after a high turnout and widespread interest. This years acting company will feature performers from all over Arkansas as well as several professional theatre artists from New York.

“We were amazed at the turn-out,” said Producing Artistic Director Matt Chiorini. “We saw about 110 people — up from 48 last year — coming from all directions. It certainly exceeded all expectations in our second year and really impressed our directors with the diversity of talented performers that Arkansas can boast. I guess the word is out!”
