Haliburton - Much ado about Shakespeare

As with literature, theatre holds the power to take viewers on a journey, in which they are able to witness worlds separate from their own, and gain a greater understanding of the society they are a part of as well as themselves. The reading, acting, and debating of theatrical works is a literary skill that is being cultivated at Haliburton County Public Library through the creation of a Shakespeare Club. This poster highlights the development of this Shakespeare based program, and discusses the important role theatre can play in public library environments.
