Subject: Denver-Based Reading & Performance Group
The Colorado Shakespeare Reading & Performance Group is being formed as
an outlet for Shakespeare fanatics (won't your neighbors be relieved?).
The Group will have two main activities: which, if you are a Shakespeare
fanatic, you have already figured them out (being the intelligent and
witty person you are).
Reading. We will convene on a weekly basis (location not yet determined)
to read (preferably out loud) a Shakespeare play. If enough members so
desire, we will retreat into our ordinary and humble lives and read
various essays on the play so that when we reconvene (perhaps over beer
and spirits and other ingredients crucial to the creative process) we
can prevail upon one another with our epiphanies.
Performance. Every few months or so, we will produce a scene night of
approximately 5-10 scenes. Each scene will be about 5-10 minutes in
length. In general, the scenes can be chosen from any Shakespeare play,
although the group may attempt to choose a theme ahead of time. (Or, if
required, afterwards.) If there is enough support (read money), we may
even produce a full-length play this summer.
How can you join this incredibly dynamic and stimulating group?
Normally, we would charge $100 per person per attendance (like a dinner
at the White House, only cheaper and less litigious). However, because
nobody would pay this much, we are discounting membership so that the
cost, for a limited time, is absolutely FREE! Just think of all the
things you can do with the $100 you've saved!!!
