We work together as a team, under the instruction of a professional director/facilitator from Kentucky Shakespeare, to learn acting and ensemble techniques while gaining an appreciation of Shakespeare and how his works reflect the warrior culture.

Through the process of learning about Shakespeare, the group gets to know one another, promoting a dialogue about military experiences—good & bad. The group creates a safe environment of comradeship in which participants can discuss whatever is on their minds about their time in and out of service.

The current group consists of men and women who are veterans of the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps, representing conflicts as far back as Vietnam, with former ranks from Sergeant to Bridgadier General. We welcome new members AT ANY TIME!

FREE for participants

Meetings are on Thursdays, 6:30 – 8:30pm
Vet Center, 1347 S. 3rd Street #101
Louisville, Kentucky 40208
