Radio Riel, Riel Events and The Cale­don Library are proud to announce that they have received a grant from the Foun­da­tion For Rich Con­tent to pro­duce a spe­cial project, enti­tled “SL Shake­speare Sum­mer”.

At the begin­ning of each week, The Cale­don Library will hold a play dis­cus­sion. Through­out the week, Radio Riel will pro­vide pro­gram­ming inspired by the play or relat­ed to Shake­speare and his works in gen­er­al.

Music at the Ball will be pri­mar­i­ly Clas­si­cal, with some Early,Celtic, Folk and Shake­speare-themed music. The week should leave peo­ple with an under­stand­ing of the play and Shake­speare, and enable peo­ple to tru­ly expe­ri­ence the play in a unique way.
