Campus News
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 bard’s 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.
