We always recommend this formula for being successful at the Tavern: come see what we do. If you like it, volunteer, show your enthusiasm any way you can. Talk to our directors. Our approach to Shakespeare is unique and does require an immersion into our philosophy and aesthetic. If you haven't seen a production here, it is important that you do. There's no way to begin to know what we're really about (and how you can contribute) until then.
