A group of Cavendish residents will get a taste of Shakespeare in April when actor and musician Jamie Ward comes to town to run his acclaimed "Playing With Shakespeare" theater program at the Gethsemane Episcopal Church next to Crows Bakery on Depot Street in Proctorsville at 7 p.m.
In two afternoon workshops Ward will coach participants in theater games, experimenting with the language of Shakespeare's time, and short sonnets, skits and monologues. The weekend will be capped by a performance on Sunday, April 18.
Ward, a New York actor, is a charismatic teacher that makes playing with Shakespeare fun for kids and adults, including those new to the work of "the Bard of Avon." His productions are full of humor, drama and fun for both cast and audiences.
Thanks to sponsorship from the Cavendish Community Theater, local residents will get a taste of Shakespeare and experience his famous words in a new way.
The performance is free to the public but donations will be appreciated.
