Press Release: SL Shakespeare Summer

June 11, 2008 - The Independent State of Caledon, Second Life

Radio Riel, Riel Events and The Caledon Library are proud to announce that they have received a grant from the Foundation For Rich Content to produce a special project, entitled "SL Shakespeare Summer".

During June, July and August the three project sponsors will hold a week of events focused on a Shakespeare play. At the beginning of each week, The Caledon Library will hold a play discussion. Throughout the week, Radio Riel will provide programming inspired by the play or related to Shakespeare and his works in general.

The last day of the week, Saturday, Radio Riel and Riel Events will hold a themed, two-hour Ball in a setting recreated from the play. Music at the Ball will be primarily Classical, with some Early,Celtic, Folk and Shakespeare-themed music. The week should leave people with an understanding of the play and Shakespeare, and enable people to truly experience the play in a unique way.

The SL Shakespeare Summer schedule is as follows:
  • June 15 - 21 - A Midsummer Night's Dream
  • July 13 - 19 - Romeo and Juliet
  • August 10 - 16 - The Tempest
