Celebrating Shakespeare

FEATURE shakespeare

William Shakespeare may be the greatest writer in the history of the English language. His plays have been translated into several languages and are performed more often than those of any playwright. April 23rd will mark the 400th anniversary of his death and the “OCC Players” will help celebrate his legacy with a series of events on campus. We hope to see you at many of them!
