Shakespeare Theatre Director Leads CUA’s ‘Twelfth Night’ Production


PJ Paparelli, associate artistic director at The Shakespeare Theatre in Washington, D.C., will direct CUA graduate drama students in their production of “Twelfth Night,” William Shakespeare’s play of mistaken identity and misdirected passion. Paparelli, who has worked with television stars such as Dixie Carter and Hal Holbrook, has directed Shakespeare productions for the United States Theatre Project, the Shakespeare Festival of St. Louis and Pittsburgh Public Theatre. He also has worked at The Julliard School in New York City, Johns Hopkins University and taught at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.


“Our goal is to bring the highest level of professional expertise and training to our graduate programs,” says Thomas Donahue, chair of CUA’s Department of Drama. “By engaging PJ Paparelli, we provide our students the opportunity to train at a level of production and high aesthetic standards for which this director and The Shakespeare Theatre are nationally recognized.”
