Today we meet TIP veteran Ghiselle Camacho.
Ghiselle Camacho: The Porter, Ensemble
Tell us about yourself.
A want to be a Renaissance woman who dabbles in art, theatre, music, history, theology, gardening, cooking, kimono collecting, early childhood education, parenting, movies, and Plants vs. Zombies.
What are you looking forward to in the production?
This is my first Shakespeare play since university. Reading Shakespeare was a favourite course. I'm excited to have the opportunity to work on a piece by The Bard.
What challenges do you foresee?
The role of the Porter is traditionally a male. His appearance is brief but there's so many reasons for him being there. The challenge is being able to convey those reasons to the audience in that short space of time.
Why do you think people should come see the show?
For the same morbid and exciting reasons we watch the Game of Thrones, Spartacus, The Sopranos, Harry Potter, and all the other blockbuster hits: to be entertained. The only difference is that this is live theatre and so the experience is way more intense. And it's Shakespeare! The English language would be pretty boring without him!
