Does Shakespeare give you the "willies"? Have you ever wanted to audition and work in a Shakespearean production, but the thought just gave you the "shakes"? Well, mark your calendars for Saturday September 30 2018 for a fun and informative workshop where you will have an awesome opportunity to feel more comfortable with the "Bard".
