It is estimated that William Shakespeare used 31,000 different words in his writing and that some had hidden meanings. He also invented over 30 new words which are now in our vocabulary. What is the true meaning of his words? Join Word Week 2019 as the San Francisco Shakespeare Festival players act out 400 of his most famous words for us. Adults and children are welcome at this event, which will be held on Saturday, March 16 from 1:30pm-2:30pm in the ground floor community room of the Noe Valley/Sally Brunn Library, 451 Jersey Street (between Castro and Diamond streets). Free admission.

About San Francisco Shakespeare Festival:
Founded in 1983, the mission of the San Francisco Shakespeare Festival is to make the works of Shakespeare accessible to everyone, regardless of age, ethnicity, geography, economic status, or level of education. The San Francisco Shakespeare Festival brings Shakespeare’s greatest works to over 30,000 people in the Bay Area each summer with Free Shakespeare in the Park. Free Shakespeare in the Park has become as much a part of summer in the Bay Area as a backyard barbecue — bringing professional, free performances of the Bard’s greatest works to diverse audiences for over 25 years. And each year the San Francisco Shakespeare Festival reaches a new audience of over 70,000 kids throughout California with its unique arts education programs — Shakespeare on Tour, Midnight Shakespeare, and Bay Area Shakespeare Camps.
