Production received multiple awards at
American College Theatre Festival in February
Premiered by the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1974, “The Bewitched” is a hilarious satire about people who, based on their wealth or religious beliefs, occupy positions of privilege. Bawdy, visceral and vaudevillian, the play explores blind obedience in 16th-century Spain during the reign of Carlos the Second, and features more than 30 actors playing more than 50 roles, with two Middlebury College alumni as guest artists - Alexander Draper, class of 1988, and Michael Doyle, class of 1998. The Middlebury College production marks the play’s American premiere and is directed by Professor of Theatre and Department Chair Richard Romagnoli.
