Saturday Shakespeare

May 25 @ 10:00 am  |  Aptos Library


In collaboration with the Shakespeare Workshop at UCSC, this in-person meeting of the Saturday Shakespeare Group will take place on Saturday, May 25th in the new Aptos Library, with a Zoom option for those who can not attend in person. The nominal meeting time is 10:00 am, library doors open at 10:00 am.

This meeting features a DVD showing. There are many productions to choose from, most of which cut the play considerably. We will see the 1996 Kenneth Branagh version which presents the play in its entirety. It has a star-studded cast.

The play is in two parts with an intermission: the first part lasts 2hrs. 37 min and the second part 1 hr. 24 min. We will proceed as follows:
10:00: View part 1
12:45 – 1:15: Break (light refreshments will be provided). We also suggest that people bring something light to share (mini-potluck).
1:15 – 2:45: View part 2

Note: For those who don’t want to view both parts in one sitting, we will reshow part 2, by Zoom only on June 1.

New Members Wanted
We are always looking for new members. Everyone is welcome. If you know of anyone who would be interested in attending these meetings, please encourage them to do so. Contact to be added to the mailing list.
