Davie St. Space for this interactive experience is limited and tickets, though free, must be reserved in advance at www.creativegreensboro.com or by calling 336-373-2974.

Like Waldo and Carmen Sandiego, sometimes Shakespeare can be elusive. If you’ve been to high school, you probably know something about Romeo and Juliet, but what about all those other plays? Creative Greensboro and Goodly Frame have assembled a cast of 25 actors ages 13-75 and have been rehearsing for five weeks to bring Finding Shakespeare to life. Audience members will be placed in small groups and travel to multiple performance locations in and around the Greensboro Cultural Center to discover and interact with short scenes. This format is fast-paced and funny, sensational and surprising.
Guided by the original practices and direct address techniques practiced at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London, Goodly Frame Theatre consistently models innovative staging choices that open minds and challenge typical conceptions about the relationships between texts, actors, and audiences.
Creative Greensboro provides support for, ensures access to and drives awareness of the Greensboro creative community. Through a range of programs, services and partnerships, Creative Greensboro supports the development of a vibrant city.
