If Shakespeare is your thing – check out this Sonnet-a-thon.  I have to say my first reaction to even the word Shakespeare is to run quickly in the other direction – it evokes memories of bad high school english papers.  Reading and writing were not my strength in high school days and I far preferred calculus and chemistry to anything literature related.  It is still amusing to me that I now spend many hours writing.   But event to a literary novice – this event looks pretty fun.

Join other Shakespeare lovers at Te Cafe in Sq. Hill (we are very happy to see that Te Cafe has reopened too!) to celebrate Mr. Shakespeare’s 446th Birthday.

Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks and Poets Corner co-host a sonnet and monologue contest to honor the Bard’s 446th birthday. Actors and non-actors alike can take a crack at their favorite sonnets, songs and soliloquies and raise a glass over birthday cake. Yvonne Hudson (seen as Mrs Shakespeare) and PSIP Artistic Director Jennifer Tober will emcee. Prize will be given for most inspired performance as chosen by the audience. Fun for the entire family.
