For Immediate Release


Shakespeare To Go Performance April 23

Catawba Valley Community College will host a performance by North Carolina Shakespeare Festival’s Shakespeare To Go traveling troupe on Tues., April 23, at 2 p.m. in the Auditorium.

The college’s English Department and Theater Arts Club are sponsoring the performance.

There is no fee for admission; the public is invited.

Seven actors traveling with the Shakespeare To Go company will perform various scenes from Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

Shakespeare To Go features direct audience contact between actor and audience. Actors incorporate the student audience into every performance, giving students the valuable experience of both observing and participating in a live performance of the Bard's work. The program offers minimal use of set and costumes, sharing with students a primary focus on the language of Shakespeare, while also allowing performances to take place in almost any venue a school can offer. The program encourages its audience to use its imagination and sense of play, as actors double and triple the roles they perform in any given production.
