Shakespeare at Winnekenni Castle

HAVERHILL — The Rebel Shakespeare Company will present a free performance of “As you Like It” on the Winnekenni Castle grounds on Thursday, Aug. 28, at 6 p.m.

Always a crowd pleaser, this theatrical troupe makes you feel as though you are “there and a part of something real that is happening” rather than just an audience member watch a performance.

In 1990, Artistic Director Keri Cahill founded the Rebel Shakespeare Company with 12 students and a staff of two. Rebel Shakespeare was first housed in Manchester-by-the-Sea, and then spent many years at Fort Sewall in Marblehead. Currently, the Company can be found each summer on Winter Island in Salem.
