"Shakespeare Summer" - Radio Riel & the Caledon Library

Radio Riel has been given a grant by the Foundation for Rich Content to produce a Shakespeare Summer in Caledon (& elsewhere). This is sort of the SL equivalent of a summer "Shakespeare in the Parks" program, only, of course, because it originates in Caledon, it involves dancing.

As you all probably know, the Victorians were downright wacky about the Bard, and the 19th c saw the creation of numerous literary and theatrical interpretations and reinterpretations of the plays. That is the tack the Caledon Library is taking with its part of "Shakespeare Summer"

Things will kick off this month with a discussion of Midsummer Night's Dream, at the Caledon Library, on June 15th. An accompanying exhibit will be on display on the Great Lawn of the Whitehorn library, in Caledon Victoria City, for the month of June. (The same exhibit will be on display in the Palace Gardens on Winterfell) This will be followed by a Grand Midsummer Night's Dream Ball, in the sim of Hoy, on June 21st.

In July, there will be Ball, and accompanying discussion for Romeo & Juliet, and in August, there will be the same for The Tempest.

If the "Webliographies" and exhibits created for these events are of interest to the the members of this group, the Caledon Library is of course happy to share them.

Feel free to contact JJ Drinkkwater of the Caledon Library, or Gabrielle Riel or Edwina Heron of Radio Riel for more information

"If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended,
That you have but slumber'd here
While these visions did appear.
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream,
Gentles, do not reprehend:
if you pardon, we will mend:
And, as I am an honest Puck,
If we have unearned luck
Now to 'scape the serpent's tongue,
We will make amends ere long;
Else the Puck a liar call;
So, good night unto you all.
Give me your hands, if we be friends,
And Robin shall restore amends."

gentlebeings, your servant
