From CU Today: A Tale of Two Tails: Dog actors make debut at Colorado Shakespeare Festival
Two unlikely actors will make an appearance at this year’s Colorado Shakespeare Festival. Mabel, an 8-year-old lab-mix, and Zebulon, a black lab trained for service through Canine Partners of the Rockies, will share the role of Crab in The Two Gentlemen of Verona by William Shakespeare in the 2022 summer season.
As they prepare for opening night on June 5, watch Mabel and Zebulon rehearse with CSF actor Gary Wright, who plays Crab’s owner Launce. Wright and the dogs’ handlers discuss what it’s like mixing barks with the Bard.
