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.
On Thursday, February 21, J. Nathan Couch will be reading from his new book Washington County Paranormal: A Wisconsin Legend Trip. Nathan will be reading about Kewaskum’s own murderous monster, the Goat Man, as well as various other spirits and entities. Mr. Couch is a paranormal investigator and researcher who runs the Downtown West Bend Ghost Walks and works with the county Historical Society on their annual Haunted Museum Tours.
There will be a Q and A session following, and copies of the book will be available following the reading. This event is FREE and open to the public. For more information, or to check out Washington County Paranormal, visit the library.
