The Nashville Shakespeare Festival says
Shakespeare will be turning 451 this month and we are in the mood to celebrate! From music to crafts to the popular Biggest Balcony Scene Ever, there's something for everyone—including birthday ice cream provided by Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream! William Shakespeare himself will even be in attendance!

On Sunday, April 26 at 3 p.m., bring your friends and family to the Downtown Nashville Public Libraryl to celebrate Shakespeare's birthday!

What will the afternoon hold??

At 3:15 pm join us for the SIXTH ANNUAL Biggest Balcony Scene Ever: Everyone present will play Romeo or Juliet in a mass recitation of the famous balcony scene. (Currently the record is held by Boston at 160 participants, that's only 20 more than we had last year! So bring all your friends and help us beat that record!)

Following the balcony scene, attendees are encouraged to stay for free family entertainment.

Costume Contest: Fun prizes will be given in the following categories: best star-crossed couple, most creative, and best young Shakespearean.

Do you miss the wonderful music of Shakespeare in the Park 2014 AS YOU LIKE IT and Winter Shakespeare 2015 TWELFTH NIGHT? Now is your chance to hear some of it again! Music will be provided by Stan Lawrence (Music Director, AS YOU LIKE IT) and Rolin Mains (Composer, TWELFTH NIGHT).

Birthday cupcakes will be provided on a first come, first serve basis. For the first time, Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream will be on hand to serve out free ice cream to the first 150 people!

Help us wish Shakespeare Happy Birthday!
