SHAKESPEARIENCE, (Shakespeare in Delaware Park’s high school apprenticeship program) will be holding a performance on Friday August 14th at 6:15 pm, prior to Shakespeare in Delaware Park’s main stage performance of JULIUS CAESAR. This year’s show is an adapted 40 minute version of ANTONY AND CLEOPATA with 9 area High School Students performing.

Shakespearience teacher Beth Donahue states, “Power, cowardice, shifting loyalties and greed play out a backdrop of kingdoms as the Shakespeareience interns explore the story of two lovers separated by oceans and joined together by passion and vanity. Join us for this energetic 40-minute adaptation of Shakespeare’s ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA and discover why a woman who can command an army can be brought low by a bad hair day.”

The Shakesperience Program is open to area high school students and is designed to provide in-depth theatrical experience with theatre professionals. Each session runs for five weeks, beginning the week prior to regularly schedule professional Shakespeare in Delaware Park performances. In addition to attending classes, students gain hands-on experience in a professional production as part of SDP technical crew.

All performances are free of charge.
