Mary Jane Miller's Shakespearean Adaptations

Mary Jane Miller

These four adaptations by Mary Jane Miller are noteworthy for their exemplary use of collaboration. Produced during the theatre's down time in the summer, these productions provided a valuable opportunity for Brock University’s Theatre students to work on and off stage with their professors as well as with community members and professional actors. Miller capitalized on the availability of the Thistle Theatre during the summer, and the wealth of student, faculty and community talent to facilitate a dynamic exchange at an otherwise dormant period of the year. Staging some of Shakespeare’s lesser-produced works, these productions filled gaps in the school-year curriculum while engaging with and entertaining the larger community. Please see the database entries for each of these plays for more detailed notes by Miller about the creative and collaborative processes involved. Below, each play title links to a collection of photographs from the play lifted directly from Miller’s own scrapbook.
