Shakespeare un-birthday 2015

Pam Verlone and Rosey Hunter, Beau's Grillery April 18, 2015

Oberons met today for our annual April gathering when we traditionally celebrate Shakespeare's un-birthday. We shared lunch at the remodeled Beau's Grillery -- formerly Beau Jacks -- at Maple and Telegraph in West Bloomfield, Michigan. Celebrants included, chairperson Richard Joyrich MD, Mara Radzvickas, Linda Theil, Barbara Burris, Pam Verlone, Rosey Hunter and Robin Browne. We missed Sharon Hunter who had planned to join us but was unable to attend.

Joyrich and Verlone reported on attending the film version of King John produced for the Stratford Festival HD series and distributed by Fathom Events at the Livonia AMC multiplex on April 8, 2015 -- see "Stratford Festival HD distributed nationwide by Fathom". Pam and Richard were were joined at the film by Oberoner Ray Perez and friends. At our luncheon, several members made plans to attend the Stratford Festival HD production of Antony and Cleopatra to be broadcast May 21, 2015.

We hope to schedule this year's Oberon meetings on Saturday afternoons at the Bloomfield Township Public Library, 1099 Lone Pine Road in Bloomfield Twp., Michigan. We will announce the times as soon as they are scheduled. Since the library is near today's meeting, we may adjourn to Beau's in the future.
