Saturday is Shakespeare Family Day at the Harrison/Small Building

A WVTF Public Radio broadcast highlights activities that will be included in a Shakespeare family day tomorrow, October 8, from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., in front of the Harrison/Small building (or in the auditorium in case of rain).

In celebration of the First Folio on display this month in the Harrison North gallery with the Library’s exhibition “Shakespeare by the Book: Four Centuries of Printing, Editing, and Publishing,” there will be opportunities for kids and adults to enter the world of Elizabethan drama, making stage blood and crowns, learning Shakespearean compliments and insults, and getting coached in the art of Shakespearean performance by actors from the American Shakespeare Center.

Later in the month (Oct. 14 at 4 p.m.; Oct. 23 at 2 p.m.; and Oct. 25 at 6 p.m.) drama students will hold a “Vigil for the Bard,” performing sonnets and the witches’ scene from Macbeth.
