He is consistently cast as multiple characters in the same story and chooses to believe this is because people just can’t get enough of him. Midsummer is Constantine’s eight production with SITS and fourteenth of Shakespeare's 36 plays. His most recent project is playing Rosencrantz and Guildenstern as twins in ‘Hamlet in the Golden Vale.’ He often hangs out with his dear friend Will. Will C Yah!
