This isn’t your 9th grade english class Shakespeare. This is laugh-till-you-cry, clap- cause-you’re-happy Will.I.Am Shakespeare.
If you live remotely near Wisconsin- go see the Summit Players. They have partnered with the state parks in WI to bring free Shakespeare to children and families, coupling shows with a workshop intended to bring Shakespeare to life.
My best friend Hannah, Summit’s founder, describes witnessing Shakespeare as following a beating heart. It takes a minute to sync up and get used to that rhythm, but when you do, it is beautiful.
I had the opportunity to be a part of the founding company its first year with some dear friends. It was one of the best experiences of my life. This group is truly a hidden treasure of Wisconsin, and if you are lucky enough to have seen them you know what I mean. They make Shakespeare accessible and positively hysterical. You will watch in awe as the cast makes magic on nature’s stage.
Broken legs on the rest of your run, Summit!
