What is "To Be! Shakespeare Here and Now"?
"To Be!" is Yours - It is customized for each audience. The presentation can emphasize the plays, themes, and historical elements you want most.
"To Be!" is Humorous - Shakespeare used comedy to entertain his audiences, and "To Be!" follows suit with hilarious scenes, ridiculous characters, and outrageous history.
"To Be!" is Interactive - Audience members take the stage, casting insults, learning manners, and playing roles including Crab the Dog.
"To Be!" is Dynamic - Ron is an actor and a teacher, but he's also a clown and a stuntman. Every show includes a swordfight, and if "To Be!" is a one-man show, then who ...?
I was extremely impressed with “To Be. . .” Some of the students commented that they wished it had gone longer—the time seemed to go by very quickly. Extremely effective; very believable. The fact that Ron catered the program specifically to our requests was so helpful and appreciated.
