There were thirteen cast members ranging in age from 10 to 15.

“This group of actors was one of the best casts I’ve worked with regardless of age,” Forst told the Star, “and it’s really awesome that they want to be doing Shakespeare outside in the summer with their peers in this day and age.

“They had such a fun time, and they’re already talking about what bewitching ‘Shakey’ play to perform next.”
