This summer, we present a weekly series of videos featuring the artists you know and love from past Shakespeare Festival seasons. In this episode, Leslie O’Carroll uses her time in quarantine to prepare for playing Bottom in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and her family can’t wait to get her out of the house!

O’Carroll’s CSF credits include Jacques in “As You Like It” (2019), Stevens in “King Charles III” (2019), Penny in “You Can’t Take It With You” (2018), Duchess of York in “Richard III” (2018), Dotty in “Noises Off” (2012), Maria in “Twelfth Night” (2012) and Nurse in “Romeo and Juliet” (2011). Local credits include 23 seasons at the Denver Center Theatre Company, most recently “A Doll’s House” and “A Doll’s House, Part 2.” Additional credits include “Parallel Lives” (Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center); “Much Ado About Nothing,” “The Grapes of Wrath” and “Our Town” (Theatreworks); “Pride and Prejudice” and “Silent Sky” (Boulder Ensemble Theatre Company); “The Odd Couple” (Senior Housing Options); “The Secretary” and “Good People” (Curious Theatre); “Tartuffe,” “Mrs. Mannerly,” “Blithe Spirit” and “The Crucible” (Arvada Center).
