Belated Happy Birthday, Bard

shakespeare-birthday_1397451905GRSF was well represented on Wisconsin Public Radio’s  Salute to the Bard.  FOW usher Connie Scharlau called in to passionately share her love of the Festival. Ten years ago I went to the Great River Shakespeare Festival in Winona.  I don’t remember what play I saw, but I fell in love!!! It’s absolutely to die for! I didn’t even know that I liked Shakespeare!  GRSF Managing Director Lee Gundersheimer shared his appreciation for Shakespeare’s plot and character. While his language is stunning, he was also a good writer in terms of plot and character. We appreciate that as well.  
Listen to the April 23 broadcast!  Don’t miss

GRSF celebrated Shakespeare’s birthday on the big day!   Several Friends of Will “acted” in a group Romeo and Juliet balcony scene during the birthday bash at Merchant’s National Bank. Photos and story!
