“We are such stuff as dreams are made of.” The Robinson Shakespeare Company (RSC) is gearing up for Shakespeare’s masterpiece The Tempest! This magical comedy features a cast with ages ranging from 8-18 and will be set in the tropical islands of Hawaii. Come and join us as you watch Prospero and his magical sidekick Ariel plan to trick his enemies. Hilarity, romance, and learned lessons are just a part of this production. The Tempest will take place at 2 pm, Saturday, May 14, in the Annenberg Auditorium at the Snite Museum. The performance is free, but donations will be accepted. Half of all proceeds will go to the Japanese relief effort. The Robinson Community Learning Center is committed to raising global leaders and we believe in taking care of our neighbors, however far away they may be.
“Now is the winter of our discontent
Made glorious summer by this son of York”
Thanks Better World Books, it will be a glorious summer indeed! RSC has received a $10,000 LEAP (Literacy and Education in Action Program) from Better World Books for the summer Shakespeare program. The Summer Shakespeare Camp is a favorite at the Robinson Community Learning Center. Participants begin the day with yoga, vocal warm-ups, and games. They take classes that can include movement, stage combat, and technical theatre. The group also rehearses and performs a full Shakespeare play. Scott Jackson, from Shakespeare at Notre Dame, will be a special guest teacher. His stage combat classes are a favorite! This summer, the RSC will perform Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet on July 9th, at 2 pm, location TBA.
