The Shakespeare Institute of Nevada (SIN) will celebrate the Bard of Avon’s 450th birthday at Town Square with readings, workshops, and spirited fun. The 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. event will introduce Shakespeare to shoppers in an entertaining and accessible way.
To mark the 450th birthday of William Shakespeare, costumed actors will present snippets of the Bard, teach mini-acting workshops for kids, and give everyday Las Vegans a chance to try their hand at reciting some of the world’s most famous words with SIN’s hilarious Shakespeare-ee-okee.
Wednesday, April 23, 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Join the party live at Town Square, 6605 Las Vegas Blvd S. in the central mall under the gazebo.
“On April 23rd we’re turning Sin City into SIN City,” said Dan Decker, director of the group and a nationally recognized author on Shakespeare. “Shakespeare’s works celebrate the human experience and his birthday is our annual way to get together and and share our passion for the great works.”
The Shakespeare Institute of Nevada (SIN) is a nonprofit theater company that celebrates the Bard every day through stage performances, workshops, lectures, and special events. It has been recognized by the Clark County School District for bringing Shakespeare to the classroom.
Dan Decker has staged Shakespeare throughout Southern Nevada for a decade, including at Lake Las Vegas, the Henderson Pavilion, the Springs Preserve and Hills Park in Summerlin, site of last year’s “Taste of Shakespeare” sponsored by the city of Las Vegas and the Howard Hughes Corp.
Along with producing the event at Town Square, Decker will be accompanied by three of the young people, ages 11-17, who study Shakespeare at the SIN workshops, to appear as featured guests on a KLAV-AM 1230 radio show.
