Los Angeles Drama Club was honored to be invited to perform at three branches of Los Angeles Public Library in January.
On January 21, seven of our Players traveled with Ms. Julia & Mr. Esdras to present An Afternoon with Shakespeare at the Woodland Hills Public Library. In addition to performances of scenes from Merry Wives of Windsor, Macbeth, Troilus & Cressida/Trojan Women, and Henry V, our audience enjoyed learning stage combat moves, theater games, iambic pentameter and, everyone’s favorite, Shakespearean insults.
On January 28, we had the honor of performing Shakespeare’s Malicious Monarchs in the beautiful Mark Taper Auditorium at the downtown Central Library. Sixteen of our Players performed as some of Shakespeare’s most frightening and diabolical rulers, and those who supported them and opposed them.
After the Central Library performance, nine of our Players continued on to the Washington-Irving Library where we capped off their Shakespeare Festival. After enjoying some Shakespeare-themed snacks, we performed to an enthusiastic and packed house, who loved being asked to insult the Players, Shakespeare Style!
