Optimist Theatre's No Holds Bard and The Milwaukee Turners are pleased to announce that the "live hosted" segments of "The Pericles Project" will be broadcast from beautiful Turner Hall, beginning February 24.
The 16-episode production streams two (brief) episodes at a time, alternate Wednesday evenings at 7:30 CST. Episodes 7 & 8 will be shown on Feb. 24; you can catch up on prior episodes (or find out more) at www.NoHoldsBard.org, or at the NHB Facebook page or YouTube Channel.
Faced with the realities of COVID-19, Optimist Theatre responded by creating a web series of Pericles, Prince of Tyre. Shot starting in late summer with minimal cast and crew in outdoor locations around Milwaukee County, we were able to observe appropriate distances and other health & safety protocols on set that would have been impossible in a traditional theatrical setting.
We have since then been editing and working out the surprising number of technical details involved with the multi-platform stream that we're planning to begin on January 13th!
