Canadian Adaptations of Shakespeare Project from the University of Guelph

 Quote from masthead of Canadian Adaptations of Shakespeare Project

This treasure trove of a site offers much to Shakespeare omnivores, not least of which is the Spotlight feature on Aboriginal adaptations of Shakespeare . Here's a snippet from the main page introduction of the site:
ThCanadian Adaptations of Shakespeare Project is the online resource for anyone interested in how Shakespeare's plays have been transformed and adapted in Canada. But it also contains a wealth of material that relates to all things Shakespearean. With the launch of CASP Version 2, we are pleased to expand the already ample offerings on the site. These include a significant increase in multimedia files; multiple new pages on new areas of research with an emerging focus on French Canada; a huge amount of special resources, including documents, books, scholarly articles, reviews, images, and the like; a literacy video game and perhaps the most comprehensive and intensely multi-mediated study guide of Romeo and Juliet ever created.
