BARDcore Reading Series

One director, one cast, one week to rehearse, and one chance to perform a Shakespeare classic - enjoy a bit of the canon while we host and provide refreshments, a little games and trivia, and overall a better alternative to your average Monday night.


Come join us for Round Three!

Drinks. Trivia. Shakespeare: Get into it!

Come hang out with us for the Third Round of our reading series:

October 21: The Merry Wives of Windsor (Director Laurel Andersen)

November 18: Julius Caesar (Director Regina Renée Russell)

December 16: The Winter's Tale (Director Andrew Oppmann)
