New Faces of Shakespeare to perform at Lewes Public Library Oct. 22
New Faces of Shakespeare, an affiliate of Possum Point Players of Georgetown, will perform at 6:30 p.m., Monday, Oct. 22, at the Lewes Public Library.
New Faces of Shakespeare will perform scenes from six of Shakespeare’s plays: "Taming of the Shrew," "Antony and Cleopatra," "Richard III," "The Comedy of Errors," "Macbeth" and "Twelfth Night."
The performers are seasoned actors who have played in local community theater groups for many years and include Stephanie Allman, Roger Ault, Jerry Cox, Maureen Downing, Esther Friend, Sharon George, Richard Huffman, Karen Kalenevitch, Tom Sweeny and Tara Wisely.
New Faces of Shakespeare has been in existence since 2009. Its purpose is threefold: First, to read the plays of Shakespeare at meetings held on the second Monday of each month at Possum Hall at 6:30. These meetings are open to all who are interested. The second purpose is to perform staged readings (script in hand) of brief scenes from various Shakespeare plays at local libraries. The third purpose is to present a full production of Shakespeare every other year at Possum Point Players and other venues, such as the outdoor garden of the Rehoboth Art League.
