COME TO ONE OF OUR MONTHLY OPEN SHAKESPEARE READINGS.

ALL WELCOME! READ OR JUST WATCH!

Join us for one of these regular informal events 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.  

 

Upcoming readings…

 

Open reading of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” (part 2 of 2)
Tuesday, December 6th 2016. 6.45pm-8.30pm. Free
- Upstart Crow Bookstore and Coffee Shop
– Seaport Village, downtown San Diego
- Directed by Charlie Riendeau

Unfortunately we have heard recently that the Upstart Crow Bookstore and Coffee Shop in Seaport Village is closing down on December 30th 2016. We have been holding readings there for more than five years and would like to thank Emily and the other staff there for their fantastic support! So the reading above is our last open reading at Upstart Crow.  We still have readings held at the Central Library downtown, and also La Jolla Library. See below for the next of those readings. But the Upstart Crow readings will be homeless in the New Year. We are looking into possibly finding a new venue for them.

 

Open reading of “King Lear” (part 3 of 3)
Sunday, January 15th 2017. 2pm-4pm. Free
- San Diego Central Library, Downtown San Diego
– We meet on the 4th Floor
