Now entering its fourth year, our troupe was founded as the junior acting ensemble for the SOUTHERN SHAKESPEARE COMPANY. Open to students of Middle and High School age, our aim is to encourage an understanding of Shakespeare’s works (and how to perform them) and to train our members in all aspects of theatrical performance.
THE BARDLINGS not only performed Caesar Salad to a sold-out audience at the TCC Capitol Center in downtown Tallahassee, students also wrote, devised, produced, directed, and acted in their own versions of some of the Bard’s most famous scenes in ShakespeaRE-TOLD…
THE BARDLINGS also participated in monthly workshops on stagecraft and learned skills such as fight choreography, voice control, make up, costuming, and set building & design, and enjoyed FREE performances at FAMU, TCC and FSU!
Meetings & rehearsals will be held at: THE OASIS CENTER (Behind St John’s) 317 E Call Street beginning Sept 6th at 5:30 pm
Performances of ShakespeaRE-TOLD II will be December 12th and 13th at 7:30 pm at GOODWOOD MUSEUM & GARDENS.
And performances of Eighth Night will be May 2nd & 3rd at 7:30 pm at GOODWOOD MUSEUM & GARDENS; and May 10th, 11th, 12th & 13th at 6.30 pm at CASCADES PARK during the Southern Shakespeare FREE SHAKESPEARE IN THE PARK Festival!
We hope you will join us!
