Yoh Players Celebrate the Bard

The Yoh Players celebrated William Shakespeare's 450th Birthday by performing a two-act play called "Happy Birthday Sweet William." According to the playbill: "We believe that if Elizabethan men could play the roles of men and women, then so can American women play the roles of women and men."
Eight very talented young women played roles from some of The Bard's most famous plays: Julius Caesar, Hamlet, Macbeth, King Lear, Romeo and Juliet, The Taming of the Shrew to name a few. The lone male actor in the troupe did not appear until the very final scene-"Sweet" William himself.
