JACKSON, Tenn. - As part of the Jackson-Madison County Library’s NEA Big Read program, the community is invited to a free performance by the Tennessee Shakespeare Company at 6:30 pm at Community Montessori School on Thurs., Oct. 26.
Shake(s), Rattle & Roll is a family-friendly, fast-paced 45-minute show that creatively links Memphis music that came out of Stax Recording Studios and Sun Studios in the 50s and 60s to the works of Shakespeare. The production features Jillian Barron and Zach Williams in this musical performance directed by Stephanie Shine.
Community Montessori School is located at 716 Westwood Ave. in Jackson. The show will be performed in the Tigrett Auditorium. Admission is free and no tickets are required.
Tennessee Shakespeare Company is a professional, 501(c)(3) theatre and education organization which performs the plays of William Shakespeare seasonally outdoors and indoors with partnering organizations; performs classical and Southern writers seasonally indoors and outdoors; and provides innovative year-round educational and training programming.
This Library sponsored performance is made possible through a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest for The Big Read, a program that aims to inspire conversation and discovery through the joy of sharing a good book.
