Thought is Free. And so is Shakespeare on the Green.

"Thought is Free." The Tempest Act III Scene II

Do you know what else is Free?.... Shakespeare On The Green, of course, but also the wonderful supplementary programs that Nebraska Shakespeare provides in Elmwood park each summer. The one I want to elaborate on today is Nebraska Shakespeare's Scholars Forum.

What do people think of when they hear Scholars Forum???...



Ok, so the baby is a little cute, but other than that, most people hear the word "Scholar" and they run for the hills or get ready for a good nap.

But to those men that sought him sweet as summer." Henry Viii Act IV Scene II
