Students at Lakeland Community College will get the chance to see Shakespeare’s genius on a more personal level as actors from the Ohio Shakespeare Festival (OSF) visit the campus. The performing artists will be at the college on Nov. 7, 2016 to conduct free interactive workshops. These workshops, slated for 9, 10 and 11 a.m. in Lakeland’s Center for Learning Innovation, will focus on stage combat, verse/prose, and Shakespeare-specific movements. In addition, OSF will present a free one-hour student matinee of “Macbeth” in the Dr. Wayne L. Rodehorst Performing Arts Center in Building D on the campus.
The Ohio Shakespeare Festival is a professional theater company that is based in Akron and performs at Greystone Hall. Joe Pine, education director and associate producer, explains, “At OSF, we firmly believe that Shakespeare was meant to be seen live. This student performance series is designed to pull Shakespeare off the page for young audiences, who have only ever experienced his plays in the classroom.” Pine says, “Through these performances, we strive to show students that Shakespeare’s plays are just as thrilling, engaging, accessible, and relevant as they were 400 years ago."
