KATHARINE SCHROEDER PHOTO | The works of William Shakespeare were performed at Jamesport Meeting House this past weekend.
On Friday and Saturday evening, Northeast Stage presented “Shakespeare: Tales and Tempests” at the Jamesport Meeting House.
Led by A.D. Newcomer, a small group of actors performed material from six Shakespeare plays, using minimal costuming and set decoration in an effort to allow the workshop participants to experiment and play.
All proceeds from the production go to support the Jamesport Meeting House and Northeast Stage’s annual free Shakespeare in the Park in Greenport.
