If you'd like to see CCSA senior Pierre Theron perform a chilling monologue from Titus Andronicus or catch a scene slice from Hamlet, directed by Shannon Clark, or The Taming of the Shrew, directed by Lindsay Reed and Alysia VanLooy, stop by UD on Sunday, February 28th and join us for a little Shakespeare.
"Sunday with Shakespeare" will be held from 1 to 5 PM at the Thompson Theatre in the new Roselle Center for the Arts on Amstel Avenue at the University of Delaware. The event is free and open to the public.
A Teachers Workshop will be held at 11:30 am: Dr. Halio and PTTP's Leslie Reidel will provide you with an hour of Professional Development at 11:30 AM. All you need to do is show up at the Thompson Theatre. If you can, stay for the Sunday with Shakespeare program starting at 1 pm." There will be refreshments at intermission.
The event will combine the statewide Shakespeare Competition, featuring individual students performing monologues and reciting sonnets, with the former New Castle County Shakespeare Festival, featuring troupes of actors performing scenes. Both will be viewed by an audience of their peers and from UD's REP (Resident Ensemble Players) Company who will serve as judges for the Competition and commentators for the Festival. The performances will be interspersed with entertainments by the day's Master of Revels, Christopher Davis, the Renaissance Man.
Sponsoring organizations include: Delaware Humanities Forum, Delaware Branch of the English-Speaking Union, the theatre program at the University of Delaware, Padua Academy and the Cab Calloway School of the Arts, and the Cab Calloway School Fund.
