St. John’s College, along with its programming partner Annapolis Shakespeare Company, is the host site for the state of Maryland for “First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare,” a national traveling exhibition of the Shakespeare First Folio, one of the world’s most treasured books. The Folger Shakespeare Library, in partnership with Cincinnati Museum Center and the American Library Association, is touring a First Folio of Shakespeare in 2016 to all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico in celebration of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.

Annapolis Shakespeare Company first approached St. John’s College with the Folio Exhibit opportunity and the idea of creating a dynamic partnership to win this exhibit in June of 2014. “We are honored at the opportunity to help share the transformative work of William Shakespeare with the public and thrilled to present live, professional Shakespeare performances, educational workshops and a wide variety of public events in support of this tremendous exhibit.” said Annapolis Shakespeare Company Founding Artistic Director Sally Boyett. “The Folio partnership underscores Annapolis Shakespeare Company’s importance in the region as an emerging premier destination for professional Shakespeare and the classics.”

The exhibit will be on view at the Mitchell Gallery at St. John’s College through December 4, 2016. Annapolis Shakespeare Company will continue with educational programming and workshops outlined above.
