Event has passed

ROCKLAND — Rockland Shakespeare Society presents “Enter Ghost,” Thursday, Oct. 31, at 2 p.m., in the Community Room of the Rockland Public Library.

"Enter Ghost" is a collage of ghost-scenes from Shakespeare's plays, ranging from spine-tingling to hair-raising to downright creepy, including HamletMacbethRichard III,  Julius Caesar  and others, read by members of the Rockland Shakespeare Society.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Thought to be the oldest continuously active Shakespeare Society in America, the Society has been celebrating for 130 years the plays of Willliam Shakespeare, the greatest English-language playwright and poet, whose works are still accessible and relevant today, according to the Library, in a news release.

The Society meets every other Monday from October through early April, at 2 p.m., in the Community Room of the Rockland Public Library, and they invite new members to participate in any or all of its activities they choose.

In 2019-2020 the group will read aloud Henry IV, Part 1 in the fall and Comedy of Errors beginning in January. In addition to readings, the meetings include short presentations and discussion by members.

Participation is fun, of course, and enriches the understanding and enjoyment of the work of the greatest English-language playwright and poet, according to the release.

The Rockland Public Library is located at 80 Union St.

This event is free and open to the public.
