On April 23rd, Blue Heron Books will celebrate William Shakespeare’s 400th ‘BirthDeathDay’ with the words of the Bard himself. From 1pm to 2:30pm Kenneth Welsh, Canadian and American film, television and stage actor and self-proclaimed Bard’s Bad Boy, will perform ‘audience choice’ selections from a big list of dramatis personae…if he can remember all the words! Welsh has had a long career as a Shakespearean actor and also wrote and performed the acclaimed off-Broadway cabaret musical Standup Shakespeare.
We also encourage shoppers to brush up on their Shakespeare, as we will be offering 20% off to customers who can correctly answer a Shakespeare-based trivia question at the checkout counter.
What would a “BirthDeathDay” be without cake? But the question remains, can Kenneth blow out the candles on a cake celebrating a 400th birthday? Drop by the studio for a glass of champagne, a piece of cake and the chance to hear Shakespearean actor Kenneth Welsh breathe life into William Shakespeare’s celebrated words.
We are excited to welcome Ted Barris, award winning author and Uxbridge resident, to the Blue Heron Studio on March 22nd to discuss his new book, Fire Canoe!
Fire Canoe tells the true story of steamboating in the Canadian West through the voices of captains, owners, pilots, engineers and passengers.
