Honoring the Bard

The life and works of William Shakespeare came to life at “Bard’s Bash,” presented recently by the Central campus English department to commemorate the birthday of the renowned English playwright.

Faculty, staff, and students gathered for the event on the lawn near the College’s student center. Some were dressed in Elizabethan period costumes, several portraying famous Shakespearian roles as period music played in the background. Students performed skits from well-known works of “the Bard.” Activities included Shakespeare trivia, a costume party, face painting, a portrait contest, and maypole dancing.

Kudos to Erin Callahan, Kim DeLauro, Heather McKnight, Barbara Brown, Nick  Weiss, Ann Pearson, William Wolfe, and other employees who helped to coordinate the entertaining and educational event.
