Music with Mike
Music is a vital part of Summit Players Theatre's Shakespeare performances! From the song lyrics that Shakespeare himself wrote to the underscoring we create on our own, each performance is full of memorable melodies. From research to teaching the actors, it's a big job to put it all together.
Music Director Michael Nicholas walks you through the work it takes to create a show's worth of music. Different instruments, cultures and historical records all have an influence on his soundscape. You'll even get a sneak peak at some of the music from our production of THE WINTER'S TALE, coming to Wisconsin state parks in the summer of 2021!
