This April marks the 400th anniversary of the death of Shakespeare. Trine University and my town of Angola are going to make sure it is celebrated very well.
A few months ago my friend, Carolyn Powers, wrote a Facebook note about a woman in Atlanta who was reading all the sonnets of Shakespeare. Hmmm....why not Angola?
So, starting April 1st and running all the way through April 30th, I will be reading the sonnets of Shakespeare on the Square at 4:00 every afternoon. If I am on the road or working, I will have a friend read for me. This is open to anyone who would like to stop by and read a sonnet also. Just pop on by a few minutes before four, and I will hand one over to you! I will be located between City Hall and the Brokaw Theatre.
On April 4th, Tim Mooney, actor extraordinaire, will be performing "Breakneck Hamlet" in Fabiani Theatre. The event starts at 7:00. Tim is a fellow Fringe friend of mine and it will be a wonderful event.
So, don't let this anniversary pass you by!
Here is the first verse I will be reading:
