Food of Love two weeks and counting; how about dinner with Roger Rees?

The Food of Love, a celebration of Shakespeare, love, and chocolate, will take place on Friday, Feb. 9, at 7:30 p.m. at the Williams Inn in Williamstown.

At this third annual benefit for the Fall Festival of Shakespeare at Mt. Greylock Regional High School, costumed students and alums will perform the Bard's love scenes, songs, sonnets, and soliloquies.
The audience will enjoy a sumptuous chocolate buffet while Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet and Ophelia, Titania and Bottom, and other famous Shakespearean lovers declaim some of the most beautiful love poetry in the English language.

Renaissance and traditional music will be performed by bagpiper Nancy Tunnicliffe, violist Emily Baker-White, guitarist Davy Payne, and the Williams College Elizabethans, a madrigal ensemble.
The Fall Festival of Shakespeare is a ten-week residency by Shakespeare & Co. at Mt. Greylock Regional High School and other county and regional high schools.
