                        Shakespeare in Delaware Park Announces:

                            Shakesperience Production August 15th


SHAKESPEARIENCE, (Shakespeare in Delaware Park’s high school apprenticeship program) will be holding their annual student performance on Friday August 15th at 6:30pm, prior to Shakespeare in Delaware Park’s main stage production of The COMEDY OF ERRORS.


Witness as the Shakesperience students take on 7 of Shakespeare’s beloved characters and match wit for wiles, lose dogs in cat fights and blend reality with delusion in a knock down, drag out Shakespearian Mash-Up where nothing is as it seems.


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 scheduled professional Shakespeare in Delaware Park performances. In addition to attending classes, students gain hands-on experience in a professional production as ensemble members and part of SDP technical crew.


All performances are free of charge.


Shakespeare in Delaware Park performances are held every evening (except Mondays) at 7:30 p.m. 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. Further information may be obtained at or by calling (716) 856-4533.
