William Shakespeare's words will electrify the city with the fourth annual Shake 38, a wildly successful urban event set for April 19-23. This year’s Shake-38 will culminate on the Bard’s birthday and serve as a precursor to Shakespeare Festival St. Louis’ production of “Twelfth Night” the following month, May 25 through June 16, at Shakespeare Glen in Forest Park. The marathon reading/performance of Shakespeare's 38 play-canon is limited only by one's imagination. Anyone interested in participating in Shake-38 should contact shake38@sfstl.com or call 314/531-9800, ext. 114. There is no limit to how a work may be performed. Shakespeare Festival St. Louis can assist in helping pair interested individuals and groups with venues if necessary. The registration deadline is March 1.
