Bard for Life

Give yourself permission to play! In these weekly evening workshops, you’ll join other adults who dream of bringing Shakespeare’s words to life– no experience necessary! Explore Shakespeare’s plays, guided by professional actors, and delight in the discoveries made by you and your playfellows. For adults 19+.
