COME TO ONE OF OUR MONTHLY OPEN SHAKESPEARE READINGS.
ALL WELCOME! READ OR JUST WATCH!
Join us for one of these regular informal evenings in San Diego with the Bard, starring you! All welcome. Free. Anyone can join in the reading or just come along to listen. Parts are re-assigned before each scene so everyone who wants to can read.
These popular readings are fun, interactive, creative, and great public speaking and acting practice. They are also a good way to meet other people who are interested in Shakespeare and his work.
