To Be: Shakespeare Here and Now

Wednesday, August 30, 2017 - 6:30pm - 7:30pm
Windmill Plaza - Little Chute Library

To Be!” is … Dynamic – Shakespeare is performed by a professional first-person actor who also happens to double as a stunt-man, college teacher, fire-eater, clown, improv-artist, and jouster. Interactive – All ages and learning levels have the opportunity to take the stage, speak Shakespeare’s words and have a great time doing it. Humorous – Shakespeare knew how to use laughter to reach his audience, and “To Be! Shakespeare Here and Now” continues in this glorious tradition. The Renaissance was a fun time and learning about it through “To Be!” is even more fun. Ron Fry is the founding Artistic Director of Optimist Theatre in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and was the Artistic Director for the Bristol Renaissance Faire for 19 years. “To Be!” has been enjoyed by more than 60,000 people since it’s debut in 1993. In addition to “To Be!”, Optimist Theatre produces free Shakespeare in the Park. The organization’s goals include reaching artists and audiences across the economic, ethnic, and experiential landscape by creating art that is accessible to all people. They aspire to educate, entertain, and inspire through creative works of artistic integrity and, in doing so, to serve as a “gateway” theatre experience, bringing new audiences to the arts.

This program is scheduled to take place on the Windmill Plaza outside the Little Chute Public Library, located at 625 Grand Ave, Little Chute, WI 54140. Inclement weather alternate location will be posted at the library. Food and Beer will be available for sale during the event. Seating is limited, so bring your own chairs or picnic blankets!
