About the Town

During my career as an educator I spent 16 years adapting and directing Shakespearean plays adapted for young audiences, so I certainly appreciate the efforts of this group to create theatrical experiences of this type in Athens. I really enjoyed the opportunity to volunteer and look forward to new offerings from the group!

Classic City Shakespeare put on a [heck] of a show! I had an absolute blast!

Thank you for the extraordinary evening! We rolled in late last night. Exhausted from both the long drive, and an emotional week celebrating the life of my father-in-law. Was live Shakespeare in our plans for this evening? Absolutely not. However when the flyer for Classic City Shakespeare‘s outdoor performance of Twelfth Night popped up, I knew we had to go. It was a dream. We brought our summary of the play so the girls could reference the plot and characters. Evelyn was lukewarm, but Eleanor was spellbound. I wish more than anything I could send this photo to Sheldon. He would have been over the moon and already planning a trip to DC to see a play together. But I know his profound love of these plays carries on. That’s enough.
