Fairbanks Shakespeare Theatre takes on 'The Winter's Tale'
By DEBBIE CARTER, Staff Writer
Fairbanks Shakespeare Theatre surprised audiences with a take on 'Julius Caesar' last year that included four-wheelers, soldiers in desert camouflage and modern warfare.
So what is the theater company up to this year?
'The Winter's Tale,' which opens next week, will plunge Fairbanks back into its longest season--temporarily. The set will include an ice rink and a ski ramp. Skaters and curlers are expected, as well as a dog team and snowball fights. At least one actor will make a skiing entrance down a 30-foot slope covered by white Astroturf."
