McCarter@HOME presents:

Shakespeare Community Reading Group

TUESDAY, MAY 26 at 7:00PM


Small cheer and great welcome makes a merry feast.

Balthazar, Act 3, Scene 1 

Love theater and reading plays aloud? McCarter hosts a casual monthly Shakespeare Community Reading Group — now in its 5th year! — for people of all ages and levels of experience. This is a casual, informal, and fun way to personally experience Shakespeare’s words and characters. All are welcome and no experience necessary!

We will share in the last two scenes of Shakespeare’s early work The Comedy of Errors (4.4 and 5.1) and then embark on a new offering: our favorite Shakespearean Monologues Slam. Interested participants are invited to sign up for a slot to share prepared readings of their favorite speeches — 34 lines or less.

All are invited, but registration is required. Please be sure to read all the information detailed in the online form.




This event is offered at no cost, but donations to McCarter Theatre Center are always appreciated.




Engage and connect with us through McCarter@HOME.
Each week we spotlight new classes, live conversations, and performance highlights
