FREE COTO DE CAZA ANNUAL SHAKESPEAREAN FESTIVAL SCHEDULED FOR MAY 11 - 25, 2006
annual Coto de Caza Shakespearean Festival kicks off May 11, 2006, with the
adaptation Macbeth by none other than the Board of Directors’ President, The
is about a noble warrior who gets caught up in a struggle for power.
Supernatural events and Macbeth's ruthless wife play a major role in his
downfall. In this modern version of Macbeth, the Baro has six warriors, some are noble, some
are not. Then Baro issues a
challenge to the citizenship to determine who the noble warrior is (two withdraw,
but the astute Baro does not inform the citizenship so he can manipulate the
results) To make it more interesting, in this adaptation, all
the kings horses and all the kings man do everything they can to confuse the
citizenship so they will not be able to tell what is going on, how many warriors
there are. In the end, the Baro has
already hand-picked two not so noble warriors who will join him in the 2006-2007
edition of the Coto de Caza Board of Directors:
Thaggard and Zipperman.
the true noble warrior, played by Yocham, realizes that Candidates’ Night has
just been a Sham, goes into a passionate soliloquy:
and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
is followed by a modern version of King
Lear. KL is
a tragic story of an old man's descent into madness as his world crumbles around
him. It is also a tale of Lear's pride and his blindness to the truth about his
three daughters and others around him.
this modern adaptation of KL, there is a Quixotic hunt for $1.54 million dollars,
originally intended to correct construction defects in and around the Coto de Caza Fair Oaks district, then mysteriously
allocated to repair of common areas to the dismay of residents, and then
apparently the money vanishes in thin air.
Shakespeare Festival closes May 25, 2006 with the production of Much Ado
About Nothing. Unlike Shakespeare's
earliest comedic works, the humor of Much Ado about
Nothing does not depend upon funny situations. While it shares some
standard devices with those earlier plays (misperceptions, disguises, false
reports), the comedy of Much Ado derives from the characters themselves
and the manners of the highly-mannered society in which they live.
In Coto’s version, everything is funny:
The situations, misperceptions, disguises and false reports.
The end result is that two new candidates are crowned members of the Coto
de Caza board of directors: Thaggard
As they say in Texas, "Remember the Alamo". Next year unless the current incompetent CZ Board and their suppliers pull some shenanigans which would not surprise me one bit, we should have direct popular elections. That will be the time to get rid of the current incompetent CZ Board since they are guilty of fiscal mismanagement, squandering our monies, subsidizing outside groups, exposing us to danger and liability on our streets, ignoring legal agreements, and causing fiasco after fiasco.
