But, soft! What light through yonder film projector breaks? Be sure to check out these Hollywood interpretations of Shakespeare’s prose each Saturday in February.

Cole Porter’s lively musical retelling of The Taming of the Shrew revolves around a bickering divorced couple still in love with each other, two impoverished lovers trying to make enough money to marry, and a pair of gangsters who refuse to leave the stage until they collect on a gambling debt.

Everyone has a reason to kill Lady Katheter DeVane, but only one guest at William Sheepsheare’s Twelfth Night party could have done it. Take on one of the many comic roles (no acting experience necessary) for an afternoon of murder, mayhem, quips, and quotes in high Shakespearean style.

Area high school students bring Shakespeare to life, lending their own interpretations of his monologues and sonnets as they compete for a berth in the national competition in New York City.

The 32nd annual event, sponsored by the Kansas City Branch of the English-Speaking Union, is designed to develop students’ speaking and critical thinking skills as they explore Shakespeare. It features the winners of preliminary competitions at KC-area high schools, plus a contest for home-schooled students. Local champions twice have gone on to win in New York, where the national event – this year tentatively scheduled for May 1-3 – is held in the Lincoln Center.
