Locals perform in Shakespeare production

INDIANAPOLIS — Two westside residents and alumni from two westside high schools are among cast members in the Garfield Shakespeare Company's fall production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream," which opens Sept. 21 in Garfield Park.

Two pairs of young lovers, a battling king and queen of the fairies, and the bumbling but lovable "Rude Mechanicals" are featured in Shakespeare's most original and charming play.

Playing the king and queen of the fairies are Covenant Christian alumnus Stephen E. Foxworthy and Susan Yeaw, a Wayne Township resident and Plainfield High School graduate. Foxworthy portrays Oberon, who directs his servant Puck to use love drops to change the romantic affections of his wife, Titania, and two other characters. As Titania, Yeaw has her own agenda to pursue, all of which contributes to a battle of words and wit ... and utter confusion.

Also in the cast is Chris Burton, a 2005 graduate of Decatur Central High School, and Sha Collier, a current Covenant Christian High School junior.

Yeaw's extensive theater resume reflects involvement with more than a dozen companies - including Hendricks Civic Theatre, Indianapolis Civic Theatre, Footlite Musicals, Spotlight Players, and Carmel Community Players - and in various roles in musicals, dramas, and comedies - acting; directing; stage production, design, and construction; management; sound and lighting; and costuming. She is associate artistic director of Shakespeare at the Rep, which will mark its debut in March with "Henry V" at the Studio Theatre in the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel. She is a past board and founding member of Spotlight Players, Hendricks Civic Theatre, and Shakespeare 2000 Company and has been involved in almost a dozen Garfield Shakespeare Company productions.

After Foxworthy graduated Covenant Christian and Olivet Nazarine University in Bourbonnais, Ill., where he majored in religion and philosophy and performed in theater productions, he returned to Covenant Christian to teach Bible and acting. He currently teaches Bible, acting, and philosophy at Horizon Christian School in Lawrence. He has been involved in theater for 11 years, including six years of extensive local community theater productions. He received an Encore Award nomination for his performance in Spotlight Players' production of "Greater Tuna." This is Foxworthy's first appearance in a Garfield Shakespeare Company production.
