Second Saturday Family Day

Bring the whole family out for a delightful day of holiday fun!  Join us as we look at the celebrations of many of the world's cultures through activities, imaginative crafts, games, and performances. Activities include: 

  • Live holiday-themed performances by choirs from the St. Francis Lower School and Olmsted Academy South.
  • Make a Christmas Pickle – No one is quite sure about the origins of the Christmas Pickle, but everyone agrees it’s funny!  Learn the story, then make one to bring the fun home.
  • Make a Year of the Rooster Scroll  – The year 2017 will be the Year of the Rooster according to the Chinese Zodiac.  Though the Chinese New Year doesn’t begin until January 28th, get ready early and create a wall hanging on the traditional lucky red paper. 
  • Shakespeare-Inspired History in Hand—First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare on tour from the Folger Shakespeare Library is leaving today! Bid it farewell by exploring some touchable Tudor-era objects. 
  • Holidays around the World Scavenger Hunt—You’ve seen the trees, but never like this! Go on a festive scavenger hunt to get a closer look.
  • Holiday-themed stories presented by our talented Teaching Artists.

Shakespeare's Life Behind Bars

Shakespeare's Life Behind Bars

The Luther Luckett Correctional Complex in Lagrange, KY, is home to the oldest prison-based Shakespeare program in the United States: Shakespeare Behind Bars (SBB). The organization is founded on the belief that all human beings are born inherently good, and that immersion in a circle of trust exploring the works of Shakespeare can call forth that goodness, transforming inmate offenders – no matter how heinous their crimes – from who they were when they committed their crimes, to who they are . . . and who they wish to become. 

The University of Louisville and Frazier History Museum invite you to join us for an evening of conversation about how deep immersion in Shakespeare’s words, characters, and actions has profoundly changed lives. The evening includes a screening of the documentary, “Shakespeare Behind Bars”, a film that follows a year-long experience mounting a production of The Tempest. Following the film, a panel of SBB alumni will discuss their own work in the program and answer questions from the audience.
