NWCTC's Pericles

This was a joint production of our favorite players, the Northwest Classical Theatre Company and Willamette Shakespeare, the company we saw for the first time this summer.  The six cast members took on over 40 roles, with each taking a turn as Gower, the play's commentator.  It was a whirlwind of costume changes and scene changes.  Tom Walton played Pericles and the actors began the play by chatting with the audience members.  It was then that I learned from Matthew D. Pavik that the company refers to Tom Walton as, "the handsome, handsome man."  Indeed he is.

This was a very good production.

I like that they all took turns at one character. I also think it must be fun to see a show where actors play different characters!
