Professional actors Ray Schultz, University of Minnesota, Morris associate professor of theatre, and Roxanne Wellington will perform "Shakespearean Tidbits: An Evening of Readings and Monologues" on Saturday, January 23, 2010, at 7:30 p.m. in the Humanities Fine Arts Black Box Theatre on campus. The one-night-only event includes readings and monologues from well-known Shakespearean works, including Twelfth Night, Measure for Measure, Macbeth, Much Ado about Nothing, and Julius Caesar.
"This should be a fun evening that will give the audience a taste of the wide range of Shakespeare's work," says Schultz. "We are excited that Roxanne is visiting Morris to share her innumerable talents with our local and campus community."
Wellington, who resides in Philadelphia, Penn., will serve as an artist-in-residence at the Morris campus Jan, 19-25, 2010. Schultz and Wellington are graduates of Wayne State University's Hilberry Repertory Theatre program and have extensive Shakespearean credits, including working with various members of the Stratford Ontario Shakespeare Festival.
Ticket prices for the evening of Shakespeare are $5 for adults and $3 for students and seniors, and will be available one hour prior to the performance.
