Photos: Shakespeare Battle

April 27, 2016

Theater Emory's 12-hour Shakespeare Anniversary Celebration kicked off at noon April 23 with a battle scene reenactment complete with broadsword and staff. Directed by John Ammerman, student actors fought valiantly before an appreciative audience on Patterson Green.

Immediately after the battle, the celebration continued with a student theater showcase in the Theater Lab of the Schwartz Center for Performing Arts.

Other events throughout the day included additional theater performances from students, alumni and Shakespearean actors from Atlanta; music; a "clown-off"; a discussion of faculty research; a reception; and a closing ritual and toast.
