Show Descriptions

The Bard himself takes the stage, alternating informative anecdotes about Elizabethan England with scenes from his immortal plays.

This unique exploration of the life and work of William Shakespeare blends tearful tragedy, cheerful comedy, and a bawdy bit of audience participation calculated to just "blush the cheek of modesty."

Actor Michael Oakes has performed pro-fessionally with the Marin, San Francisco, and Stinson Beach Shakespeare Com-panies, and throughout the Bay Area.   Including excerpts from Much Ado About Nothing, A Comedy of Errors, Macbeth, and more.

This portrayal of 'The Prince of Players' is entertaining, educational and accessible to all.  For school performances a unique Study Guide prepares students for this fascinating and fun visit with the greatest writer of all times.

Shakespeare: Live!

Text Box: All the world's a stage, and all the men and women, merely players.
