Shakespeare: Page to Stage

A Discussion with
John F. Andrews and Jerry Ferraccio

ShakespeareThursday, February 10
7:00 p.m.
Main Library Community Room
145 Washington Ave.

How do actors and directors “read” Shakespeare’s scripts and translate them into vibrant performances? What do they need to know about the cultural contexts in which these works were first produced? What kind of attention should they give to the rhythmic patterns found in verse and prose?

These are some of the questions we invite you to explore with John Andrews, founder and president of the Shakespeare Guild and a scholar who has produced two editions of the playwright’s plays, and Jerry Ferraccio, a theater professional who has delighted audiences in such venues as Shakespeare & Company and the Alabama Shakespeare Festival.

This event is free and open to the public.
