Virtual performance by the Rockland Shakespeare Society

Apr 14, 2021

Rockland — The Rockland Public Library presents a reading from the Rockland Shakespeare Society, Thursday, April 29, at 6:30 p.m. on Zoom. This event is free and open to all.

The Rockland Shakespeare Society will present scenes from "The Merchant of Venice," one of Shakespeare's best-known plays. The society has been engaged in an in-depth study of this fascinating play and looks forward to presenting key scenes to the audience. The members participating are: Jim Trolles, Joseph Coté, Peter Conant, Lisa Goodridge, Mary Alice Bird and John Bird. Directed by Carole Leporati.

Each year, beginning in September, the society explores a tragedy or drama and then moves on to a study of one of Shakespeare's comedies or problem plays. The study of each play involves a reading of the play over a five meeting schedule, a scholarly paper relating to each act delivered by a member of the group, and lively discussions of topics relating to the play. For further information, contact Marianne Boretz at New members are welcome.
