SHAKESPEARE ON KING
Join the Charleston Library Society and the College of Charleston to celebrate the arts and culture through a shared appreciation and history of the work of William Shakespeare. This special collaboration between the Igoe Shakespeare Library and Special Collections Archives at the Charleston Library Society along with the College of Charleston’s Department of Theatre and Dance invites the Lowcountry community to participate in the historical acclaim of Shakespeare across two unique formats throughout the year. Inspired by the Public Theater of NY – we agree that “Theater is an essential cultural force…art and culture belong to everyone.”

Tickets to this event are $25 for CLS members and students with photo ID, and $35 for all other guests.
