REED CITY — Twenty high school students are taking on a twist of Shakespeare for the first summer youth play set for multiple performances during this year’s Great American Crossroads Celebration.
Crossroads Theatre Guild member Tim Locker is directing the group’s performance of “The Curate Shakespeare As You Like It” by Don Nigro. He began the project because he wanted to offer something for youth to do during their summer vacation to help keep them active. Currently, two troupes are rehearsing from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Tuesday through Thursday and learning other aspects besides the script. Behind-the-scenes roles, concessions and handing out programs will be covered. During each performance, the troupe that is not on stage will take care of the other important roles in the production.
