Shake on the Lake will return in 2017 – with Lyndonville students
LYNDONVILLE – A theater group that performs Shakespeare will be back in Orleans County this year, performing with students from Lyndonville.
The Lyndonville Area Foundation has provided funding for Shake on the Lake to team with local students in performing Shakespeare on May 5 at Lyndonville Central School, and then Aug. 8 at the Yates Community Free Library and Aug. 9 at the Yates Town Park.
Shake on the Lake will also do a two-week theater camp in late April/early May for Lyndonville students.
The Foundation is providing funding for the program and the school district will provide rehearsal space and use of equipment, said Jason Smith, the district superintendent.
Shake on the Lake started in 2011 with a goal to bring Shakespeare to rural Western New York. The group is based in Silver Lake, Wyoming County.
Last summer Shake on the Lake toured in five counties, including a July 31 performance at the Orleans County Marine Park at Point Breeze.
