Dec 17: Shakespeare and Me – A Private Journey Made Public with Bill Salem

Sunday, December 17, 2023 10 AM

Join us as actor Bill Salem discusses how his experience performing Shakespeare’s words has deepened, with his own acting technique evolving to always searching first for Will’s journey as a playwright, then overlaying his own journey as an actor upon the character. Salem will perform several characters with some reflection about what they are saying and how they say it.  Salem has come to think of the Bard as his life coach.

Bill moved to New York City to become an actor and although things didn’t work out as he hoped, he took acting classes and was cast in many diverse roles while working as a teacher and librarian. He eventually located in Boston where he worked with the Public Theater, a Shakespeare Company, in many Shakespeare roles.  Here on the Cape he and his friend Rod Owens have presented a two-man program: now Bill wants to inhabit his own presentation.
