Shakespeare Aloud Shakespeare

Alternate Thursdays • 10:00 a.m.-Noon • Shapiro AB

June 14, 28 • July 12, 26 • August 9

Shakespeare Aloud will be continuing through the summer with a special program.  Rather than reading a play, the class will be viewing a set of DVD's featuring John Barton, co-founder of the Royal Shakespeare Company working with such RSC stars as Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, and Patrick Stewart.  In discussing how to "Play" Shakespeare, he illuminates secrets of the text, how the plays are written and some of the subtleties.  Students will not be asked to read the plays and regular attendance is beneficial, but each session will stand essentially alone.  This allows attendees to gain insights on Shakespeare not necessarily associated with a particular play.
