Our program of ten scenes, directed by Maureen Downing, assisted by Fran F. presented in the gazebo at the Milton Memorial Park during Milton's First Annual Shakespeare Festival on Saturday, April 27th, was a great success. The weather was beautiful, and the program drew 75 plus people.
This park venue is truly a great vehicle to show more people how interesting Shakespeare can be. Some of us hope we can use this park or maybe, as Tara suggested, the Canal Park in Lewes for future programs or a complete staging of a play.
Tara has started a Facebook for our organization. Please join if you wish:

I think love is the reason we are here, and with the exception of the Bible, no other works have the depth of understanding of the subject of love as do Shakespeare’s. For example, Sonnet 116 on the steadfastness of love takes on a new meaning for me as each decade passes. -- Beverly H. Smith
