The Conservatory of Theatre Arts at Webster University invites members of the Webster community to join them at the Conservatory Spaces in Old Orchard on Thursday, April 23, at 10:15 a.m., for a short program of exciting, original theatre.

Building on an ongoing partnership, students from the Creative Dramatics class in the Conservatory of Theatre Arts have designed a multi-week workshop to engage students from Great Circle at Edgewood in a theatre-making process. With A Midsummer Night’s Dream as inspiration, they created a collection of short pieces that speak to and with Shakespeare’s play.

The event is presented as part of Shakespeare Festival St. Louis’ SHAKE 38, a free, five-day community marathon of Shakespeare’s 38 plays. Performances are provided at locations ranging from rooftops to bars to coffee shops to street corners.
