Today, 23 April 2016, we commemorate the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare, the English playwright who made an incredible and long-lasting impression on theatre and literature. All over the world, there are ongoing celebrations to the art and artistry of Shakespeare. Here in Newfoundland and Labrador, we are celebrating his legacy in our own way, exploring his use of folktale and mythology through our show “Shakespeare’s Fairytales”
“Shakespeare’s Fairytales” shines a light on the origins of playwright William Shakespeare’s most beloved stories, including The Merchant of Venice, King Lear, The Winter’s Tale, As You Like It, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Directed by Danielle Irvine with story coaching by Dale Jarvis, “Shakespeare’s Fairytales” stars Elizabeth Hicks, Lynn Panting, Lauren Shepherd, and Alanah Whiteway, spinning the tales that inspired theatre’s greatest stories.
We hope you will join us in our celebration of stories and Shakespeare!
