It’s William Shakespeare’s birthday – come celebrate with the Harborside Shakespeare Company and Jesup Memorial Library on Saturday, April 20 at 7 p.m. at the library, 34 Mount Desert St. in Bar Harbor. It’s a very special edition of Shakespeare Open Mic Night.

Everyone is invited to step up to the microphone and share a favorite scene, soliloquy or a snippet of a sonnet from the works of William Shakespeare – or even their own takes on the works of The Bard.

No experience necessary – come to read, watch or perform. Participants can sign up at the door. A selection of Shakespearean texts will be provided as well as refreshments.

For more information, contact the Jesup at (207) 288-4245 or, or the Harborside Shakespeare Company website at
