On a designated Saturday each month, Shakespeare Aloud will host a free reading of each of Shakespeare’s 37 plays, one per month until the entire canon is complete. Community members are warmly invited to participate as readers (no experience or audition required) or as audience members. Shakespeare Aloud provides the opportunity to hear all the plays, to become readers, and to listen to and work with others. A collaboration with CSULB Department of Theatre Arts.
How it works:
Roles will be assigned at 10:45am; reading begins at 11:00am. Character names will be placed at a table in the center of the room and anyone who wants to read can choose a chair. There will be additional seating for those who want to read along silently. We will take one intermission in the middle of the play. During the break, readers at the table can give up their seats to anyone who would like a turn reading out loud. Some copies of the play will be provided but readers should bring their own. Visit your local library to check out a copy! Everyone is welcome! All voices, all dialects. Shakespeare Aloud is intended to be a fun exploration of Shakespeare, so bring your sense of humor!
