Photo Flash: Meet the Cast of THE WINTER'S TALE at The Old Globe!

The Old Globe today announced the complete cast and creative team for Shakespeare's spellbinding romance The Winter's Tale. Artistic Director Barry Edelstein makes his Old Globe directorial debut with the show, the first indoor Shakespeare production at the Globe in over a decade. The Winter's Tale will run Feb. 8 - March 16, 2014 on the Donald and Darlene Shiley Stage in the OldGlobe Theatre, part of the Globe's Conrad Prebys Theatre Center. Preview performances run Feb. 8 - Feb. 12. Opening night is Thursday, Feb. 13 at 8:00 p.m. Meet the cast in the photos below!

NPR calls Old Globe Artistic Director Barry Edelstein "one of the country's leading Shakespeareans." Now Edelstein's work takes center stage with The Winter's Tale, Shakespeare's most enchanting masterpiece, featuring a powerful musical score written expressly for the production by acclaimed classical composer Michael Torke. The Winter's Tale sweeps breathtakingly from tragedy to comedy and along the way visits kings and queens, dancing shepherds, a most extraordinary statue, and one notoriously hungry bear before it reaches its stunning, magical conclusion.

Acclaimed stage and screen actor Billy Campbell returns to the Globe following performances in the celebrated productions of Much Ado About Nothing (2003) and The Comedy of Errors (1997). Campbell currently stars as Dr. Alan Farragut on the new SyFy Channel drama "Helix." He is perhaps best known for his lead role on the series "Once and Again," for which he received a Golden Globe Award nomination, and the cult favorite film The Rocketeer. His other theatre credits include Fortinbras (Ovation Award) and Roundabout Theatre Company's Hamlet, and his television and film credits include "The Killing," "The 4400," "Crime Story," "Dynasty," Gettysburg, Enough, and Dracula.

The cast of The Winter's Tale also features Erin Elizabeth Adams (Dorcas), Jordi Bertran (Mamillius), Meaghan Boeing (Emilia), Lindsay Brill (Mopsa), Angel Desai (Paulina), Jamal Douglas (Mariner), Kushtrim Hoxha (Cleomenes), Paul Kandel (Autolycus, Archidamus), Maya Kazan (Perdita), A.Z. Kelsey (Florizel), Mark Nelson (Antigonus, Old Shepherd), Natacha Roi (Hermione), Robbie Simpson (Dion), Brendan Spieth (Clown), Paul Michael Valley (Polixenes), Cornell Womack (Camillo), Patrick Zeller (Jailer), and Nadia Guevara and Albert Park(Ensemble).

The creative team includes Taylor Peckham (Music Director), Wilson Chin (Scenic Design), Judith Dolan (Costume Design), Russell H. Champa (Lighting Design), Fitz Patton (Sound Design), Michael Torke (Original Music), Bryan Byrnes (Fight Director), Jan Gist (Voice and Dialect Coach), Caparelliotis Casting (Casting), and Anjee Nero (Stage Manager).
