The time has come, my friends, to move the Shakespeare In Action Blog a bit closer to home.
Sad, I know, but it’s not like we’re leaving the internet for good! You can visit us at our new home:
We’ve got loads of new ideas for blog posts coming, including news and information about our upcoming shows, educational programming, and fundraisers! Bookmark our new page and visit us sometime! We are keeping this page up as well, so you will be able to access all of our blog posts of the past!
Away, away! Once more, sweet lords farewell.
What a lucky day for all of you! There are so many exciting things happening here at Shakespeare In Action, we just had to make a second Photo Friday post!
We are starting rehearsal for our brand new production of Hamlet next Tuesday! Our Stage Manager, Maureen Callaghan, has been busy all week making sure preparations are running smoothly! Here is a picture of her with our Artistic Director, Michael Kelly, going over some plans for the big day!
Hello dearest readers. Happy Friday!
I know we are all looking forward to a quiet and relaxing weekend, but I know some folks who are ready to have some fun! Our TD Shakespeare for Kids Library Club is back for another session starting on November 2, at Toronto Public Library locations across the city! The sessions run from 10am-12pm and 2pm-4pm.
We had a training session on Monday with our library instructors and some of our interns! Our Education Coordinator led the group through a series of workshops, so they will be able to lead their own groups through Shakespeare’s works!
Have a fantastic weekend!
Hello Shakespeare friends,
Preparations for Shakespeare In Action’s Hamlet are continuing so I’m here to continue the blog’s Hamlet theme. Out of total curiosity I googled “the first Hamlet Shakespeare” on google images and I found something interesting so I thought I’d share it: an old photograph of a 19th century actor who many theatre historians consider to be the greatest American actor and greatest Hamlet of the 19th century. The following is a photograph of him in his Hamlet costume. His name’s Edwin Booth. Fun fact about Edwin Booth: in the 18th century he toured America and the major capitals of Europe performing Shakespeare plays.

Have a good weekend everyone!
Hello my dearest Shakespeare fans! I hope you all had a fabulous week. We are currently getting ready for our brand new production of Hamlet, and we decided to have some fun in the rehearsal space today!
Our lovely intern, Rosemary ponders those famous words… I don’t think I have to tell you what they are!
Have a fantastic weekend!
Last Saturday Shakespeare In Action did a guerrilla style performance of scenes from three of Shakespeare’s plays: Romeo And Juliet, Taming Of The Shrew, and Midsummer Night’s Dream at King Blue Condo Presentation Centre as part of Nuit Blanche. The following are pictures I took at the final performance.
