The Kewaskum Public Library is pleased to present “To Be! Shakespeare Here and Now” on Tuesday, March 26 at 6pm. The show is a one-person interactive presentation, featuring actor Ron Fry as William Shakespeare. Dynamic interpretations of excerpts from some of Shakespeare’s most famous works are combined with a humorous look at life in Renaissance England. The program also includes plenty of opportunities for audience members to star alongside The Bard of Avon.
Shakespeare is performed by a professional first-person actor who also happens to double as a stunt-man, college teacher, fire-eater, clown, improv-artist, and jouster. All ages and learning levels have the opportunity to take the stage, speak Shakespeare’s words and have a great time doing it. Shakespeare knew how to use laughter to reach his audience, and “To Be! Shakespeare Here and Now” continues in this glorious tradition. The Renaissance was a fun time and learning about it through “To Be!” is even more fun.
Registration is not required to attend this free program, which is made possible by a grant from the Wisconsin Humanities Council.
