The scenes will be presented as a staged reading, so actors will have scripts in hands for the performances-no line memorization required.

“Scenery is the perfect opportunity to see what Shakespeare is all about, whether this is your first time on the stage or you’re a seasoned actor wanting to have some fun with a few great plays,” said Shakespeare & Friends co-founder and director Catherine Gillet.
