Gallery Players to Host Readings of the Shakespeare Canon
2016 marks the 400th anniversary of the loss of the man widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. To kick off the New Year, Player's Shakespeare will begin their commitment to read all of Shakespeare's plays by the end of 2016. This will take place at Gallery Players over 4 jam-packed weekends reading The 10 Histories (April 1-3), The 13 Comedies (July 1-3), The 10 Tragedies (August 5-7) and The 5 Romances (October 30-November 2).
The free readings will be "on your feet" recitations by any and all interested in participating, although spectator positions are also available and encouraged.
In addition, 6 weeks prior to each weekend, Player's Shakespeare-Studio will open its doors with acting and technique classes specifically geared toward the upcoming genre of plays. Students in the classes will then be able to able to put their training to practical use as core participants in the Canon readings.
