Previous Events

KING CHARLES III (December Lottery)
Presented by: Shakespeare Theater Company
This new play was nominated for a Tony Award and has many classroom connections. The play revolves around a political debate over a privacy bill that will limit the freedom of the press and makes fun of the stereotypes of the Royal Family that we are all familiar with. It’s also written in Verse! We think this play is ideal for History and Civics classes as well as British Literature and English classes.
