Performing outside at Baileys Harbor’s Bjorklunden may be a midsummer night’s dream right now, but Amy Ensign is still helping lead young actors during the fall and winter months. The managing director at Door Shakespeare during the summer months, Ensign brings that experience with her as she directs students at Sevastopol High School for their plays and musicals. She enjoys being a part of a student’s first experience in theater and treats their rehearsals similar to as if they were professionals. Ensign says working with the students gives her energy as an actor herself.
Sevastopol presents Matilda Friday and Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. The production shares the spotlight on the peninsula with Kewaunee High School’s musical presentation of Alice in Wonderland, which will also have shows this weekend.
