Ferris State student and faculty volunteers will be performing plays by William Shakespeare to celebrate his birthday on the stage in the Quad outside of the University Center on Thursday, April 20th from 11:00am to 12:00pm. Students will be able to stop by and watch the performance. One of the scenes being performed this semester requires the use of fencing sabers. In addition, they will be passing out cupcakes (ordered via campus catering and served under a tent, as required) and bookmarks to Ferris students. If the weather does not permit the performance, the event will be moved to the event space B on the second floor of the University Center.
