Free Shakespeare is available this weekend, from the awardwinning drama department at the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School. Shaking up their usual fall program, the student thepians are performing selected scenes from the Bard and other playwrights instead of a single play.

Tonight at 7 p.m. it’s selected scenes from As You Like It, Hamlet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Romeo and Juliet.

Saturday, Nov. 10, there is a matinee at 2 p.m. and an evening performance at 7 p.m. both featuring Kate Murray’s students performing a range of works from ancient to contemporary.

All performances are free but first-come, first-served, with limited seating at the black-box stage in Room 405, located at the back of the Performance Art Center at the high school, with a complimentary coffee and cookie buffet.
