Subject:        An Invitation to Mid-Atlantic Shakespeare Groups
 
The Maryland Renaissance Festival--Maryland's largest outdoor themed
entertainment--is again sponsoring a "Shakespeare Weekend" during the long
Labor Day weekend, Sept. 3, 4 & 5. In addition to the regularly scheduled
productions of [abridged] R & J and Shrew, as well as thrice-daily appearances
of "Shakespeare's Skum" [fractured-fairy tale versions of the Bard] the Fair
hopes to highlight as many other Shakespeare performing groups, societies,
scholars and etc... as possible.
 
Last year's successful weekend featured performances by actors from
Washington's Shakespeare Theater and Maryland's Shakespeare on Wheels as well
as an appearance of Mr. Shakespeare himself. This year we are hoping to do
more.
 
The outdoor event is informal and flexible, and could accomodate performances,
demonstrations, lectures, discussion groups and more, including, possibly, use
of the Fair's to-scale reproduction of the stage of the Globe. We will also
happily distribute any flyers, brochures or other information your group might
have. Daily attendance (barring rain) exceeds 12,000 and frequently approaches
20,000.
 
For more information please call entertainment director Carolyn Spedden at
1-800-296-7304; e-mail to Mike Field at the above address, or write Carolyn at:
Md. Ren. Fest.; P.O. Box 315; Crownsville, Md. 21032.
 
Thank you. Hope to see you there.
