This year, Nebraska Shakespeare is teaming up with Nebraska Educational Telecommunications (NET) for "Shakespeare Uncovered" and will be hosting an evening double-feature when we screen two Shakespeare documentaries: The Comedies and Macbeth. The broadcasts are part of a year-long celebration of Shakespeare on NET Television and Radio that includes events such as "Talk Like Shakespeare" Day, a sonnet writing contest and performances of Shakespeare plays on NET Radio and at locations across the state. Watch for information on NET Television and listen for more details on NET Radio.
Following each On The Silverscreen film, Nebraska Shakespeare will host a discussion, featuring guest scholar, D. Scott Glasser, Chair of the University of Nebraska at Omaha's Department of Theatre and Instructor for UNO's course: Shakespeare on Film: The Art of Interpretation. Topics will include the film, the history of its production, and the interpretation of Shakespeare's text.
“Shakespeare Uncovered” is made possible by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the generous support of the project’s lead foundation sponsor, the Howard and Abby Milstein Foundation. Major funding is also provided by Rosalind P. Walter, The Polonsky Foundation, Virginia and Dana Randt, the LuEsther T. Mertz Charitable Trust, and PBS.
NET local partners are Nebraska Shakespeare in Omaha and Flatwater Shakespeare in Lincoln.
