New Faces of Shakespeare, an affiliate of Possum Point Players of Georgetown, will perform at the Lewes Public Library at 6:30 p.m., Monday, March 31.
New Faces of Shakespeare will perform scenes from five of Shakespeare’s plays: "The Taming of the Shrew," "The Merchant of Venice," "Julius Caesar," "Hamlet," and "Twelfth Night." The performers are seasoned actors who have played in local community theater groups for many years and include Jerry Cox, Amy Denham, Richard Freedman, Sharon Gambill, Sharon George, Richard Huffman, Chuck Rafferty, Lorraine Steinhoff and Tara Wisely.
New Faces of Shakespeare has been in existence since 2009. Its purpose is three-fold: to read the plays of Shakespeare at open-to-the-public meetings held at 6:30 p.m. on the second Monday of each month at Possum Hall; to perform staged readings, script in hand, of brief scenes from various Shakespeare plays at local libraries; and to present a full production of Shakespeare every other year at Possum Hall and other venues, such as the outdoor garden of the Rehoboth Art League.
This program is made possible, in part, by grants from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency dedicated to nurturing and supporting the arts in Delaware, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. For more information, call 302-645-4633 or visit www.leweslibrary.org.
