Driftwood Theatre Announces New Cast Member

Driftwood Theatre Announces New Cast Member Driftwood Theatre is pleased to announce that Sochi Fried is joining the company of Rosalynde (or As You Like It) for the summer 2018 Bard's Bus Tour. Sochi Fried will be taking the role of Rosalynde.

Sochi Fried's selected credits include Measure for Measure (Shakespeare Bash'd), Crossing Delancey (The ALLIANCE THEATRE, Georgia), and Blood Weddings (Modern Times Stage Company/ Aluna Theatre). Rosalynde will be her Driftwood debut.

Set in 1918, Rosalynde takes place when Canadian women were finally granted the right to vote in federal elections. When circumstances force Rosalynde, played by Sochi Fried, from her home in the city, she flees into the unknown wilds of the forest where she sets out on a journey of identity, self-discovery and love - learning that to carve her own path, she needs to break the rules.

Directed by D. Jeremy Smith, the Rosalynde ensemble includes Geoffrey Armour (Festival Players) as Touchstone, Caroline Gillis (Innocence Lost) as Jacques, Ximena Huizi (Theatre Inamorata) as Celia, Megan Miles (Hart House Theatre) as Charles, Phebe, and Audrey, Ngabo Nabea (Classical Theatre Project) as Orlando, Derek Kwan (Mr. Shi and His Lover) as Oliver, and Silvius, and Eric Woolfe (Eldritch Theatre) as Duke Frederick, Duke Senior, and Corin.

Rosalynde incorporates live music, physical performance, and puppetry designed by production designer Sheree Tams and puppeteer and cast member Eric Woolfe. The creative team also includes musical director/composer Tom Lillington, lighting designer Michael Brunet, dramaturge Myekah Payne, and stage manager Kelsey Rae.
