SHAKESPEARIENCE, (Shakespeare in Delaware Park’s high school intern program) will be holding a performance on Friday August 12, 2011th at 6:15 pm, prior to Shakespeare in Delaware Park’s main stage performance of AS YOU LIKE IT.  (A return performance with take place at the Buffalo Public Library on Monday August 15 at 12pm)


Some call this intern production the “Bee’s Knees!” Some call it the “Cat’s Pajamas!” Some even call it the “Elephant’s instep!”  We call it “Shakespearience!” and not to “Blow our own trumpet,” but we think it is “a good time had by all!”  So join us for the fun!


Shakespearience is truly a collaborative process.  The teacher (Susan Drozd) and students have rehearsed four days a week for three weeks and have worked together to work  the script, develop the concept and perfect their Shakespearian characters.  This educational experience for the students promises to be a fun filled entertaining performance for the audience.


The Shakespearience 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.


Shakespeare in Delaware Park is now in its 36th Season of FREE Shakespeare. AS YOU LIKE IT runs nightly at 7:30pm until August 14th.    Shows take place on Shakespeare Hill in Delaware Park, next to Hoyt Lake behind the Rose Garden, off Lincoln Parkway near the Albright-Knox Art Gallery.
