Shakespeare Bard Like That!
Event Date: April 2016
On April 23 2016 The Oratory Foundation joined the rest of the world in celebrating 400 years since the passing of William Shakespeare. Students of the Foundation performed his sonnets and excerpts from his plays. The evening was completed with music, dance and a gala fashion show displaying a wide array of style from Shakespeare’s day. This memorable evening was staged under the banner “Shakespeare – Bard Like That!”
“Centre-stage his works mesmerize
Tragedy and comedy epitomized
Audiences with tears and laughter react
Shakespeare bard like that!
Of diamond worth measured in linguistic carat
Shakespeare bard like that!”
