Shakespeare Comes to Nashville
Message from Brad Gioia
Montgomery Bell Academy is grateful to partner with Metroparks in the Nashville Shakespeare Festival in bringing the Folger Shakespeare Library's first folio to Tennessee. This amazing book will be on display at the Parthenon in Nashville from November 10, 2016 until January 8, 2017. This website celebrates the arrival of Shakespeare's folio to the state of Tennessee. We look forward to enjoying a number of events related to Shakespeare at Montgomery Bell Academy during this time and in the Nashville area. Please visit the Parthenon's website Shakespeare in Nashville to learn more about this special opportunity.
Our schools’ interest in Shakespeare is long-standing, and our theater has decided to produce all of its plays this year in tribute to Shakespeare. We hope you will enjoy the of the information about Shakespeare in the folio on this website and find the time to visit Shakespeare's important book at the Parthenon.
