Join us for the Bard-a-thon XX where community members are invited to come together and read the complete works of William Shakespeare for 10 days in the dark of winter. This year marks the 20th time FST has brought people together to share the beauty of William Shakespeare’s plays and poetry by reading them all out loud.
 
Raven Landing is generously donating their Community Room 4 for ten days so that FST can welcome everyone to enjoy Shakespeare’s work. The schedule is below with play readings throughout the days and weekend nights. Plays are read out loud and anyone who comes can read a part in the play, or just sit and listen if that is more your style. If you can’t make it down to the location, you are invited to listen at home through our online streaming service or even call in and read with us!
 
Bard-a-thon is the Fairbanks Shakespeare Theatre’s unique flagship education and outreach program. It is free for everyone and open to the public. Many teachers in the area offer extra credit to students those who attend. Local businesses can get involved in the fun by sponsoring a play or a collections of sonnets. But most importantly, just come and share the magic of Shakespeare with your friends, old and new. Whether you are a die hard Shakespeare fan or you don’t know a single thing about it, you are welcome to come the Bard-a-thon XX!
