Shakespeare Under the Stars
Directed by Deric McNish
Dramaturg & Adaptations by Taylor McPhail
Media Consultant – Alison Dobbins
Planetarium Director – Shannon Schmoll
Featuring stellar actors from Michigan State University’s Department of Theatre.
Listen to a live performance of Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale while enjoying a star show on the Abrams Planetarium hemispherical projection dome.
The event will begin with a talk about astronomy and astrology in Shakespeare’s plays, during which the planetarium’s experts will use their powerful Digistar 6 star projector to provide demonstrations.
Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I love.
Comets, importing change of times and states,
Brandish your crystal tresses in the sky,
And with them scourge the bad revolting stars.
The heavens themselves, the planets, and this center
Observe degree, priority, and place,
Insisture, course, proportion, season, form,
Office, and custom, in all line of order.
Troilus and Cressida
