Shakespeare’s 450th Birthday Party

Apr 22, 2014


Critics of the 17th and 18th centuries accused William Shakespeare of “a want of artistic restraint.”

In the 20th century, George Bernard Shaw questioned his moral propriety.

And then there’s Laurence Olivier who said, “Shakespeare – The nearest thing in incarnation to the eye of God.”

A Noise Within celebrates the Bard’s 450th birthday on April 24th, in front of the theatre and in our lobby, with a family event. See sword fight demonstrations and take a lesson. Leave an insult on their Shakespearean Insult wall. Not just a bouncy house, but a bouncy castle. Try on period costumes. Sing Happy Birthday to William Shakespeare, who will appear to blow out his candles.  Enjoy a cupcake with the Bard.

“The game is afoot,” and “all the world’s a stage.”

A Noise Within welcomes the public to this free event.
