SSA Theatre Teacher Performing in Local Play

Photo of Dana Hardy-BinghamShady Side Academy Senior School theatre teacher Dana Hardy-Bingham, a professional actress with more than 30 years of stage experience, will perform in Quantum Theatre's local production of William Shakespeare's King Lear this spring. The play is a reimagination of Shakespeare's greatest tragedy, and Hardy-Bingham plays the evil Regan.

Performances will be held May 10-June 2, at the Carrie Blast Furnaces National Historic Landmark, Carrie Furnace Blvd, Swissvale PA 15218. Learn more and purchase tickets here.

The play's synopsis: Witness the scale and majesty of Shakespeare's greatest tragedy, staged amidst the grandeur of Pittsburgh's once-great industry. The towering blast furnaces remain as a monument to the region's steel manufacturing, and paint the backdrop for Lear's tragic fall from glory.

Congratulations and good luck to Mrs. H-B!
