Bard Is Back At The English Rose

3 New Plays, 6 Evenings Of Tea, Shakespeare And Sweets

Tuesday, December 30, 2014

Shakespeare For the Elizabethan Impaired, a six-week class, is back, along with well-brewed tea and a different “pudding” each evening.

“Shakespeare Chattanooga did a full-length production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream last June and then guested with the CSO,” says instructor Janis Hashe, who founded the company in 2007. “So I have not had a chance to circle back to this class, but what better time than the New Year?” 

Plays included this time are Twelfth Night, Julius Caesar and Romeo and Juliet. 

“We did a very successful production of Twelfth Night some years ago, and will be doing readings of both Julius Casear and Romeo and Juliet very shortly,” Ms. Hashe says, “so I felt these were good choices this time for the class.” 

Class participants enjoy a tea break, with choice of teas, and a special dessert (“pudding” to the Brits) during each class session. 

Ms. Hashe is the founder and producing director of Shakespeare Chattanooga. The company appeared with the Chattanooga Symphony & Opera in October 2014 by invitation as part of the Shakespeare in Love evening.   Ms. Hashe also teaches Introduction to Theatre at Chattanooga State. 

Shakespeare for the Elizabethan Impaired will be held at the English Rose Tea Room, 1401 Market St., from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Jan. 13, 20, 27, Feb. 3,10 and 17.  The cost is $150 (discount for couples) and individual classes are $35. All include tea and dessert. 

Twelfth Night will be held Jan. 14 and 21; Julius Caesar will be Jan. 27 and Feb. 3 and Romeo and Julie will be Feb. 10 and 17. 

Pre-registration is required with a maximum of 15 students.  To register and for more information, contact Ms. Hashe at 622-2862 or jhashe@epbfi.com
