Summer of Shakespeare: Macbeth
Brazos Bookstore, Wednesday, June 24 at 7pm
We’ll meet, sans thunder, lightning, or hurly-burly, to discuss this famous tragedy. As one of the most popular and frequently-performed plays, there’s a wealth of material on Macbeth that adds fantastic depth to the text and its staging. Let’s be honest--almost everybody knows this story. We’ll get into it deeper. We’ll discuss not only these iconic characters and speeches, but also staging ideas and past performances--and we may even dip into the legends, history, and mystery.

Summer of Shakespeare: The Merchant of Venice
Brazos Bookstore, Wednesday, July 8 at 7pm
The Merchant of Venice has a complicated and controversial history--in fact, that’s probably the one thing most people know about this play. We’ll discuss the way this play constructs its characters, the society they live in, and the themes of justice that pervade it--as well as how these themes are juxtaposed against the stereotypes and racism present in the text. How do modern productions handle this? How do we interpret this play, and how do we present it responsibly?

Summer of Shakespeare: Scenes for Kids
Brazos Bookstore, Saturday, August 8 at 2pm
You may not know it, but kids are the ideal audience for Shakespeare. Young kids thrive on gripping stories and engaging storytelling. Rather than being a barrier, Shakespearean language and wordplay are a great point of interest for kids--how many times as a child did you fixate on one new word, and say it over and over until it didn’t sound like a word anymore? Those kinds of children will love Shakespeare and his language, just as much as the magic, the characters, and the twisty plots. More than that, kids are smart, and they need smart material to keep up with them.

Bring your young readers to our children’s Summer of Shakespeare program, an abridged version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream presented by the talented teen actors of Main Street Theater’s Summer Shakespeare program. The play will run approximately 45 minutes, and there will be a 15 minute talkback afterward for the audience to interact with the director and performers. This event is designed for children ages 6-10.
