Shakespeare at the Library
Join us at Rodman Main Auditorium on Saturday, July 19, at 1:00 p.m., for a preview of A Midsummer Night's Dream, by William Shakespeare. This play was Shakespeare’s most successful comedy, both funny and romantic. Kevin P. Kern, Assistant Professor of Theatre at the University of Mount Union, will offer a brief discussion of the production, then short selections from the play will be performed by professional and amateur actors from Shakespeare at the Castle. The play is set in 1904, the same year as the beginning of construction of Glamorgan Castle. It is a family-friendly, hilarious story of consequences when mortals collide with the fairy kingdom. As Kern explained, “Shakespeare is for everybody.”
Attendees to this preview will be entered into a drawing to receive a pair of FREE lawn tickets, per family, to the Castle performance. Four tickets will be given for both Friday and Saturday; two tickets for Sunday. The Friends of Rodman Library are sponsoring the drawing for the 10 lawn tickets. The public performance at Glamorgan Castle will be July 25, 26, and 27, at 7:00 p.m. The library preview is free and open to the public. No registration is needed. For more information, call the library at 330-821-2665.
