The Lawyer Show: Midsummer's Night Dream - Cast
2011 Cast

One of Vancouver’s most important legal events and a valued tradition, The Lawyer Show is a fundraiser for two of Vancouver’s most cherished theatre institutions: Carousel Theatre for Young People and Touchstone Theatre, both registered charities. Every year, twenty or so lawyers take to the boards to prove that acting and the practice of law have way too much in common. Lines are learned, songs are sung, audiences applaud, money is raised, and fun and friendship abound along the way.

Everyone's favourite musical toga party!

This hit musical is inspired by the farces of ancient Rome and tells the bawdy story of a slave named Pseudolus and his attempts to win his freedom by helping his young master woo the girl next door. A hilarious comedy, the show features many classic elements of farce - disguise, mistaken identity, and of course a lot of door slamming! Stephen Sondheim’s hummable songs pepper the action with witty social satire. Forum is an ensemble play that’s sure to please!
