Event canceled due to health conditions.
April 23, 2020 is William Shakespeare’s 456th birthday. To celebrate, Delaware Shakespeare would like to present every single play Shakespeare ever wrote in the course of one hour, in downtown Milford on Thursday, April 16.
So we could use some help!
In partnership with Downtown Milford, Inc., we aim to have about 20-30 seconds of dialogue from every Shakespeare play performed in a whirlwind fashion on “Shakespeare Day“ – a fun, light-hearted event that honors the dizzying diversity of Shakespeare’s writing and the collaborative spirit of downtown Milford. We hope to find volunteers from a wide cross-section of the community – from the government, arts, education, and business sectors – to step up to the mic for their 15 seconds of Shakespeare glory. Would you join us as a volunteer?
You’d be assigned a brief piece of text from a Shakespeare play (don’t worry, you don’t have to memorize it!). Some of these will be read solo, some will be a piece of dialogue to be read in tandem with another awesome volunteer. Delaware Shakespeare will hold a “drop-in” rehearsal at the offices of Downtown Milford on a Tuesday, April 14, from 10am-5pm, when you can stop in at your leisure for 5-10 minutes to go over your dialogue and be briefed on the logistics. Then, all you need to do is show up on April 16 to take part in the fun. (Time commitment would be roughly 5:15pm-6:30pm.)
