Shakespeare's Worst Love Stories: 1-day workshop, ages 8-18

Shakespeare performers

Roses are red, violets are blue
Shakespeare's worst love stories, performed by you!

Calling all skeptics! Shakespeare's love stories aren't all lovey-dovey, and they don't all involve a balcony. Sometimes being part of a Shakespearean couple is downright complicated! Counteract the saccharine Valentine's Day festivities with some oddball love stories. A fairy queen falls for a donkey. Mr. and Mrs. Macbeth are smitten with power (and each other...?), and Beatrice and Benedick are too wise to woo peaceably. Celebrate Valentine's Day, Bard-style. 

This one-day workshop culminates in an informal showing at 2:30 p.m. for friends and family. Open to students of all experience levels and abilities. Bring water, a lunch and snacks to keep your energy going!

Price is $65. Scholarships available upon request.

Saturday, Feb. 10, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Wesley Fellowship Theater
1290 Folsom St., Boulder
