Shakespeare's play adorns Concord's campus for third year
July 26, 2012 ·
The Appalachian Shakespeare Project is preparing for its third season at Concord University.
Cast members are rehearsing William Shakespeare’s comedy “The Merry Wives of Windsor” for this year’s performance.
The project started in the summer of 2010 at Concord with Erin Bone Steele as director of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Steele, who also directed “Macbeth,” is serving as a consultant on this year’s production.
The crew is made up of Concord research students, community members, and faculty.
The Appalachian Shakespeare Project is sponsored by the Division of Languages and Literature at Concord University. “The Merry Wives of Windsor” is funded in part by a grant from the West Virginia Humanities Council.
The performance is scheduled for this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Concord University’s Athens campus.
The performances will begin at 6 p.m. nightly in front of the Fine Arts Center. Guests are encouraged to bring their own camp chairs and blankets. Picnics are also welcome.
