Shakespeare in High Park!

MelanieNew Blog Posts0 Comments

Instead of always having our amazing students sign up for courses in order to broaden their knowledge in theatre and become the best actors in Mississauga, we’ve decided to take a different approach…it’s called “Go-out-for-a-night-with-our-amazing-students-to-see-Shakespeare-because-sometimes-you-just-have-to-experience-theatre-and-enjoy-being-an-audience-member-instead-of-always-being-on-stage,-so-why-not-see-The-Taming-of-the-Shrew-in-High-Park-on-August-15th?” (**DEEP BREATH**). We think this is a really great idea. In fact, we’re making it a tradition. It’s already a tradition because we did it last summer too, and it was a really great night! Therefore, it’s our 2nd Annual Trip to See Shakespeare in High Park. Why … Read More
