Saturday, Sept. 3 — PLYMOUTH — The Stand-Up Shakespeare Company will perform at the Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site on Saturday. The 2022 annual “Shakespeare Alive! A Bard-Based Variety Show” returns for an all-new, never-before-seen collection of scenes, skits, soliloquies and songs.

The beloved troupe travels to Killington and Plymouth each Labor Day weekend to present a new one-hour show made up of romance, tragedy, history and comedy, all based on the works of William Shakespeare. And, lo, verily, the show is always free. Although donations are gratefully accepted.
