Opening Night Celebration of The Winter’s Tale by William Shakespeare
Join fellow central Pennsylvania alumni for an evening celebrating the opening night of Dickinson’s performance of The Winter’s Tale by William Shakespeare. One of Shakespeare’s later plays, The Winter’s Tale begins in a world of jealousy, false accusation and suspicion and ends—16 years later!— with one of Shakespeare’s most joyous, hopeful endings. An intriguing story of mistakes, contrition and forgiveness, The Winter’s Tale contains some of the most beautiful, affirmative and challenging writing in the Shakespearean canon. One of the most beloved plays of its time, it is a meditation on the healing power of time.
6:30 – 7:30 p.m. John Dickinson Society Pre-show Talk With Professor of Theatre Todd Wronski in Holland Union Building, rooms 201 & 202
8 p.m. The Winter’s Tale Opening Night Performance in Mathers Theatre
Following the performance, join us for our opening night reception at the Department of Theatre & Dance offices in Montgomery House. Please register by Wednesday, March 25.
