Cambridge American Stage TourCAST

CAST, the Cambridge University American Stage Tour, was founded in 1999 with the aim of producing an annual Shakespearian tour of the East Coast of the United States of America with a small group of Cambridge's most talented actors and technicians. CAST also provides the opportunity for American students and young people to participate in workshops, as a way of introducing them to Shakespeare or building on the knowledge they already have.

🌊⚓️ Interestingly the face of horror one might make while being shipwrecked is almost exactly the same as the one prompted by people who haven’t bought their ticket to the CAST 2019 preview at the @adctheatre yet! Funny that!
