Shakespeare troupe scheduled
There will be a special performance for university
students on Feb. 17 of the Walton Arts & Ideas Series Shakespeare
off the Shelf. The performance for students will be at 4 p.m., Tuesday,
Feb. 17, in the Rowntree Auditorium. The regularly scheduled performance
will be at 7 p.m. that evening.
Shakespeare off the Shelf is a four-person
romp of one of Shakespeare's greatest comedies The Taming
of the Shrew. This is a rollicking look at the bards work
as you have never seen it before. In Shakespeare's day, the theater
was not a place where well-behaved audiences sat quietly in their seats.
Shakespeare off the Shelf recaptures those days with rollicking,
unusual interpretations of classical works.
After seeing this performance, you will never think of Shakespeare in
quite the same way again.
Tickets are free for the campus community and $10
for the general public.
