Student Wins Leads in Major Shakespeare Festival
Theater major Ben Maters has been cast in two lead roles in a major Shakespeare Festival, after auditioning with a speech he encountered and studied last spring in a Shakespeare class at Western. Maters will play Bertram in All's Well that Ends Well and Edgar in King Lear in the Mississippi Shakespeare Festival's 2012 productions in Oxford, Mississippi.
