Celebrate Shakespeare's Writing for National Poetry Month

National Poetry Month is just around the corner and we're getting pumped for a month of exploring Shakespeare's Language!

We're kicking off our 2019 performances with a reading of Timon of Athens. The play is an examination of privilege and poverty: Timon is a celebrated member of Athens, whose exploitation by false friends forces us to gaze into the cravings we all share.

On April 6th, we'll be exploring this lesser-produced script surrounded by the phenomenal artwork at Gallery 1516! The performance starts at 3 PM, but come early to meet the staff and cast.

Join us at 2 PM to enjoy a glass of wine, mingle, and take in the artwork in the Nebraska 8 Invitational exhibition. At 3 PM, the heavy-hitting cast of talented local and regional actors will present the play!

Starting on April 1st, submissions will be accepted for the 22nd annual season of the Anne Dittrick Sonnet Writing Contest. With adult, middle school, and high school divisions (and no entry fee), everyone can participate! 

Looking for tips and inspiration? Check out our new #NEShakesEDTalks video series (we're looking at sonnets for this month's topic) on YouTube!

Winning sonnets will be featured at Shakespeare On The Green and authors will receive prizes or tuition-free attendance to Camp Shakespeare.

Speak’st thou with love on thy lips and full life in thy heart! The Governor proclaimed April 23rd (Shakespeare's Birthday) as Talk Like Shakespeare Day across the state!

Celebrate Shakespeare's language with tips and activities for the classroom, at work, or just for kicks throughout the day. Visit our Talk Like Shakespeare page for fun ways to participate in the holiday.
