The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 9.0377 Tuesday, 21 April 1998.
Date: Monday, 20 Apr 1998 22:02:45
Subject: The Cleveland Shakespeare Festival
I have a great announcement to make.
I am pleased to introduce the inaugural season of The Cleveland
Shakespeare Festival. Our season will consist of "The Taming of the
Shrew" and "Macbeth" performed outdoors, in repertory from 13 June
through 28 June, 1998. In a year that has seen the SAA Conference come
to Cleveland, we are very excited to offer these shows free for the
public, on the campus of Case Western Reserve University, in the
cultural heart of Cleveland, University Circle.
We will be casting a central company of actors to perform both shows,
and we are pleased to be receiving support from The Baker-Nord Center
for the Humanites, Eldred theatre at CWRU and The Cleveland Play House.
For those of the collected SHAKESPERians who are in the Cleveland area,
you can find out more about auditions by calling 216.732.3311. Find out
more about our season and our philosophy (What is "original staging"?).
