Whether comedy or tragedy, romance or history, Shakespeare’s works offer a little something for every taste. The West Florida Public Library, in partnership with the Southeast Teen Shakespeare Company (SETSCO), is pleased to announce a weekly Shakespeare Club, meeting every Tuesday from 5-7pm at the Main Library. Participation in the club is free and open to all ages and levels of interest.
The club is geared to those who already love The Bard and to those who might not have “gotten it” the first time around but want to learn more. Instead of a traditional classroom approach to getting to know Shakespeare, this weekly club will read the plays aloud and stop as often as needed to make sure the story, language, and meaning are clear and understandable. Other activities will include live performances by local actors, guest lectures, movie screenings, and possible group travel outings to view regional performances.
The Southeastern Teen Shakespeare Company is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing teens in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties with instruction and performance opportunities that lead to their significant growth as artists and community members. Visit SETSCO.org to find out more.
