Shakespeare Dallas has launched a new opportunity for our audiences to meet and discuss the plays being performed in our season. Ever wonder how an acting company prepares to stage a Shakespeare play? What method of text analysis and discussion take place in the rehearsal hall to allow an actor to perform a Shakespearean role to the best of their ability? If you missed out on our Hamlet Book Club, you are invited to experience that process at our Book Club for As You Like It!
Led by Associate Artistic Director Jenni Stewart and actor/scholar T.A. Taylor, Book Club gatherings are comfortable, fun and promise great discussions. The Book Club will meet for four sessions to read and discuss the upcoming play, provide a behind the scenes look at the rehearsal process, and receive an invitation to an exclusive closed rehearsal.
Book Club: As You Like It
In Shakespeare’s comedy filled with cases of mistaken identity, intrigue, and romance, we follow the heroine Rosalind as she flees from persecution in her uncle’s court, accompanied by her cousin Celia, to find safety and eventually, love, in the Forest of Arden.
