The Magis Theatre production of Shakepeare's "The Winter's Tale" opened in the New York City parks and later moved to our own training and performance space. In this production I had a great pair of roles: Leontes, the tyrannical ruler of Sicilia, and Clown, a simple but clever shepherd of Bohemia.

The Professor insists on the proper pronunciation!



From Ionesco's "The Lesson" as the Professor.
(directed by Niky Wolcz)
This production won FIRST PRIZE at the
International Theater Festival in
Piatra Neamt, Romania.
It was an honor to play in the land of
Ionesco's birth.
Rosette Lamont wrote, "In the role
of the dictator/professor, George Drance
passes through a complete range
of emotions: from false shyness, to increasing
lubricity, anguish, panic."
Below is a shot of the press conference
after the performance.
