During the first six months of 2019, I want to bring accessible, professionally-recited Shakespeare to middle and high-school students, and to underserved adults in homeless shelters and retirement villages throughout the country. Funds will be used to travel to booked locations where I will workshop local participants interested in verse-speaking and stage movement. Some of the bookings will be free with sponsor and grant funding, but fundraising will greatly enable the Shakespeare Troupe to provide the educational and developmental aspects for which it is known, to produce inspiring performance of the greatest playwright of all time in simple, straightforward readings of the words we have all come to appreciate and use in our daily conversations.Website for Shakespeare Troupe, Inc.
"The World of Shakespeare" was presented on March 24, 2017 at the Cushman School of Miami. Forty-five 8th-grade students performed scenes from four great comedies under the tutelage of Shakespeare Troupers and school teachers.
