Today's performance of As You Like It by The Shakespeare Institute Players was a great success. The UK Summer Camp 2012 and beneficiaries of the 9/11 Scholarship Fund seemed excited to be there and eager to learn about Shakespeare. Here is a picture of the Camp Members and the Players together for the first time. Enjoy!
On Thursday, 16 August 2012, As You Like It will be remounted by The Shakespeare Institute Players. We will perform an edited version for UK Summer Camp 2012. The summer camp will be visiting The Shakespeare Institute to experience their very first Shakespeare production. The camp is close to my heart because it benefits children who were directly affected by the events of 9/11. The 9/11 Scholarship Fund was established by the British Council to award scholarships to the dependents of victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks to the U.S. I am excited to give these kids a piece of Shakespeare, a good laugh, and a touch of hope for their futures. We'll make Shakespeare scholars out of them yet! ;)
