In celebration of Shakespeare's 450th birthday, the Claremont Colleges Library invites you to join us for a night of Shakespeare on Monday, April 14 at 7 p.m. in the Honnold/Mudd Founders Room. Student performers will be doing a dramatization of various Shakespearean sonnets followed by an unveiling of the Special Collections exhibit "Shakespeare at 450: Keeping The Name Alive." This is the inaugural exhibit of the Claremont Center for Engagement with Primary Sources (CCEPS) student curator program, and was curated by Amy Borsuk, Scripps '14.
"Shakespeare at 450: Keeping the Name Alive" celebrates Shakespeare's genius and popularity through the actors and actresses who have portrayed his characters from the 18th to the 20th century. These creative minds have served as our tie to Shakespeare on and off the stage, and have made Shakespeare, his characters, and his plays into the icons that they are. Exhibit on display from April 14 through May 30, 2014 in the Special Collections Exhibit Area.
