Annie Corrigan (who plays Celia and Aliena) and Scott Witzke run through some of the period music that will punctuate the WFIU staff reading of "As You Like It" on June 4. Looking on is our "Jaques," David Brent Johnson.

Monroe County Civic Theater is observing 25 years of Shakespeare in the Park by staging a week of readings of all 37 Shakespeare plays — including one starring WFIU staff!

On Wednesday, June 4, at 7 p.m. at the Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center Rose Firebay, on-air personalities, other staff members, and friends will offer a reading of As You Like It. A list of scheduled “cast” members is at bottom. This will not be a staged, costumed production, but there will be musical accompaniment appropriate to the era.

This event is open to the public. We hope you can join us for this, as well as for other readings being held by community groups at venues around Bloomington from May 30 through June 7.
