RCTC's Fourth Annual Shakespeare Festival is April 13-21

Time to party like it’s 1564! RCTC’s Fourth Annual Shakespeare Festival is April 13-21.
Student Life and the Goddard Library are sponsoring events during the week of bardalicious activities.
  • Wed. Apr. 13: Sonnet-writing workshop, 2-3 p.m. MH209. The winners of a student sonnet competition will win $50, $25, and $10 gift certificates to the RCTC Bookstore and get their poems published in the Echo. The first-place sonnet will be published in the Rochester Post Bulletin. E-mail your submissions to by noon on Tuesday, April 19. (Better three hours too soon than a minute too late.*)
  • Tues. Apr. 19: Halt! An Audience! An encounter with the Bard by The Minnesota Sky Vault Company from 11-noon in the cafeteria. Refreshments! (Do you think because you are virtuous, that there shall be no more cakes?*)
  • Tues. Apr. 19: Spoken Word, Poetry and Music featuring Bob Sanborn, Colby Ruport, and the poetry of ENGL1150. A poetry open mic to follow. Event begins at 12:30 p.m. in the cafeteria. (All the world’s a stage.*)
  • Thur. Apr. 21: Sonnet winners will be announced and join us for a Shakespearean Stage Combat Presentation by Doug Scholz-Carlson of the Great River Shakespeare Festival in CF206/208 at 6 p.m. Celebrate the Bard’s birthday with cake. (With mirth and laughter, let old wrinkles come.*)
Stop in to the Library to check out the Shakespeare display on the main floor any time during the week, and while you’re there, ask for a Shakespeare bookmark. There will also be a Shakespearean Scavenger hunt during the week, so watch for more details on that.
Also week-long, hop up to the third floor in AT306 and check out the “Lighting Shakespeare” exhibition presented by the Photographic Lighting Techniques class.

* Words from the Bard himself.
