Shakespeare’s exact date of birth remains a mystery, but we celebrate on April 23. His baptism is recorded in the Parish Register at Holy Trinity Church in Stratford-upon-Avon on Wednesday, April 26, 1564. In honor of the day, we asked you to share some of your favorite lines from Shakespeare. Thanks for celebrating with us!
A favorite from our Artistic Director, Davis McCallum.
