Project Shakespeare announces 2014 season
This summer Project Shakespeare will present three productions including a new program for elementary and middle school students. Performances will be running from July 24 through Aug. 4 in various locations in Jaffrey, Rindge and Peterborough.
For the 2014 Summer Season, Project Shakespeare’s Mainstage Company will present “The Taming of the Shrew” directed by Deborah Shakespeare Thurber.
This play presents a comedic battle of the sexes. Sweet Bianca can have her pick of suitors, but not until her elder sister, the acid-tongued, shrewish Kate, can be married off.
A new program being introduced this summer is called Project Shakespeare Too! Elementary and middle school students will present a 30-minute performance of “As You Like It,” directed by Angela Vroom.
This is one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies about flirtation, friendship and mistaken identity set in the Forest of Arden.
Each summer the Royal Shakespeare Company invites select amateur, student and professional theatre troupes to perform at their open air theatre, The Dell. Project Shakespeare was selected by the Royal Shakespeare Company to perform “Hamlet” at The Dell in Stratford-upon-Avon (the birthplace of William Shakespeare himself) on Aug. 9 and 10.
