SAMANTHA ROSE MASHEK, PERFORMER
Samantha is excited to be making her debut performance with Shakespeare On The Green in this years production of King Lear. Samantha is a senior Theatre major at UNO, where she recently appeared in Stop Kiss. Other UNO credits include As You Like It (Phoebe), The Threepenny Opera (Lucy), A War of Roses: Foreign Flames (Warwick), and Kwaidan (Snow Woman). Last May, Samantha traveled to London where she visited The Globe Theatre and Shakespeare’s birthplace. Prior to enrolling at UNO, Samantha was heavily involved in Theatre at Bryan High School, where she was president of the International Thespian Society and appeared in productions including Midsummer (Hermia), Little Shop of Horrors (Audrey), and Hamlet as the title role. When Samantha is not onstage she enjoys cuddling with her cat, building costumes and sets, hanging out with her friends and family, and drinking wine or coffee. Samantha would like to thank everyone at Nebraska Shakespeare for a wonderful summer of theatre, and all her friends and family for their unconditional love and support!
