Save the date! November 12, 2012 is the next workshop and evening performance by the Lakeside Shakespeare Theatre, to be held at the Oliver Art Center in Frankfort, Michigan.


Members of the Lakeside Shakespeare Theatre ensemble will present a free workshop for kids in the morning and a performance for the community in the evening. The evening will also showcase an exclusive look at the upcoming 10th anniversary summer season.


Students ages 6-15 are welcome to attend the Shakespearience workshop, from 10:30am -1:30pm. Registration is required. The free workshop will focus on learning and creating Shakespearean words - and short scenes to showcase those words! Students will perform these short scenes at the evening performance.


The evening Shakespearience is a celebration of Shakespeare, with performances from the workshop students, interns, and professional theatre ensemble.  This Shakespearience starts at 7pm. Audience members will also be able to learn more about the exciting opportunities Lakeside Shakespeare Theatre has planned throughout the year.


Danny Taylor, LST ensemble member and education faculty, notes, “I love Lakeside because it is a company dedicated to bringing Shakespeare and creative theatrical performance to Benzie County, Michigan. Lakeside has amazing potential in a community like Frankfort where the support and love of 'what we do' seems to stretch and grow each season. I love the community as much as I love performing the shows!”
