BENEDICK

Jens Damborg Jensen

 

A lord and a soldier, Benedick has the respect of both the Prince and young Claudio. He has a quick wit and a deep dislike for Beatrice. That IS "dislike", right?

 

BEATRICE

Vanja Vukotic

 

The niece of Leonato and the cousin of Hero, Beatrice can match anyone word for word, quip for quip, but her humourous ways hide a much deeper story of love and loss. She absolutely loathes Benedick, almost to a degree where you would think she is forcing it.

DON PEDRO

Erik Laursen Canter

 

The nobel and joyfull Prince of Aragon who has cast his affection on the young Count Claudio, in a completely totally platonic way.

 

DON JOHN

Christoffer Lukasen

 

The bastard brother of Don Pedro whose heart is as filled with malice as his mouth is with venomous words.

CLAUDIO

Philip Fischer

 

Smart. Patient. Level-headed. The young Count Claudio is none of these things. But he does have a good eye for Hero, and good friends in both Don Pedro and Benedick.

LEONATO

Nicolai Stisen Jacobsen

 

The governor of Messina, Leonato cares mainly about three things: his daughter Hero, his niece Beatrice and whether his guests all have enough to drink.

 

 

 

ANNA

Lina Thierry

 

The wife of Leonato, Anna cares about three things as well: that there is wine, that his cup is full of it and that he knows where to get more when it empties.

ANTON

Christian Østergaard

 

An attendant of Leonato's and a very VERY faitfull man.

BORACHIO

Jeppe Moldt

 

One of Don John's followers, Borachio is greedy and morally compromised.

 

 

CONRADE

Amalie Bak-Sørensen

 

The other of Don John's followers. Unlike Borachio, Conrade is instead morally compromised and greedy.

HERO

Elsa Kristine Blomberg

 

The daughter of Leonato, Hero may look sweet as cream, but her cousin Beatrice has been somewhat of an influence on the girl, teaching her the joy of a witty retort.

 

MARGARET

Zana Veliqi

 

The younger of Hero's two gentlewomen, Margaret has an unfortunate taste for bad boys.

URSULA

Margarita Ke

 

The older of Hero's two gentlewomen, Ursula lives for the gossip of the nobels around her.

DOGBERRY

Emilie Lind Damkjær

 

The constable in charge of the Watch. Imagine a cross between Sherlock Holmes' brains and the toughness of John McClane. Now reverse that, and you have Dogberry.

VERGES

Mette Kathrine Hansen

 

Dogberry's partner in crime. Or rather in crime-solving. No, wait, that is somehow even further from the truth.

 

 

 

FRIAR FRACIS

Christian Østergaard

 

He is a priest in a Shakespeare-play, so obviously his go-to advice is something along the line of "Just play dead!"

THE SEXTON

Cecilie Stubberup Højberg

 

The judge with the unfortunate job of having to process anyone Dogberry and Verges somehow manage to arrest.

A BOY

C. S. Ankersen

 

The servant of Benedick who tries his best to sleep all day and still get paid.

MESSENGER

Tenna Stinne Sandø Møller

 

A messenger in the employ of Leonato.

THE WATCH

They are the men who are sworn to protect the people of Messina. God help us all.

FIRST WATCHMAN

Tenna Stinne Sandø Møller

 

SECOND WATCHMAN

Katrine Gaarde Vahlberg

 

THIRD WATCHMAN

Isabella Steinicke

 

FOURTH WATCHMAN

C. S. Ankersen

 

Joanna Panduro

 

Natasja Ravnsbæk

Is this a dagger which I see before me, The handle toward my hand?
