Cape Ann Shakespeare Troupe is casting for the Valentine’s show, Shakespeare on Love, and we still need a few roles filled. The show will run February 13th-15th at the Community House in Rockport. At this time, we are looking to cast:
a Lady Ann, to perform a scene from Richard III (Duke of Gloucester). Richard is already cast, but if you’re interested in reading for Lady Ann, please contact Susan at email@example.com
We’re also in the market for:
A charismatic and dashing gentleman to play Mercutio
A lovesick young man to play Romeo
a girl-Friday type lady to play Benvolio
They’ll be performing an arrangement of scenes from Romeo and Juliet that explores the bromance (and maybe romance) between Romeo and Mercutio. If you’re interested in reading for one of these roles, please contact Aynsley at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a reading.
There are a few other roles that have not been cast, so if you’re interested in acting, you can email email@example.com with a short description of any acting experience and anything you’d be interested in.

2014 Anne Turcotte Leadership Award
Paul Frontierro, 7 Seas Whale Watch in Gloucester
The Anne Turcotte Leadership Award is presented to an individual or organization whose innovation, expertise and energy serves as an inspiration for others in the tourism industry.
Paul Frontierro, Owner and General Manager of 7 Seas Whale Watch in Gloucester was nominated by the membership and endorsed by the Nominating Committee and Board of Directors for going above and beyond to make sure that visitors have a wonderful and unforgettable experience. Paul and his team offer visitors an experience well beyond that of your typical whale watch. They educate in a fun and memorable way, entertain, and set a high standard for future tours and excursions. And they do it under some of the most difficult conditions, including seasickness, bad weather, or (worst of all) no whale sightings. Even if hit by all three of these catastrophes, visitors walk away from a 7 Seas Whale Watch with smiles. Paul and his crew are “that good.” His passion and dedication makes him the perfect candidate for this award.
2014 Award Winners l.to r. Paul Frontierro, Pam Peterson, Stacia Cooper, Dr. Michael Medlock, Will Cole, Senator Kathleen O’Connor Ives
