After a fine first season in 2005, the Woodward Shakespeare Festival of Central California is back with more scheduled performances for 2006. The troupe will kick off its summer with a free staged reading of Julius Caesar on May 2 and 9 at the Woodward Park Library.
The staged readings are presented in two parts, with an academic introduction and discussion time with the cast following the reading. Audience members are encouraged to bring their own copies of the play to read along with the actors.
And mark your calendars for later this summer when the Woodward Shakespeare group brings you the full performances of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Macbeth, both for free at Woodward Park. (There’s a $3 parking fee, if you park inside the entrance.)
