MONROE - Shakespeare on the Edge performed Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" on Aug. 19 at the Twining Park Bandshell.

Shakespeare on the Edge is a local nonprofit that works to bring arts to youth throughout Green County to build self-awareness and respect for others, strengthen community and create a love for arts in kids.

The Eclectic Rogues, the traveling youth core company of Shakespeare on the Edge with 18 youth actors, performed at 7 p.m. Aug. 17 at Edgewood College in Madison and at 7 p.m. Aug. 19 in Monroe. The Rogues were directed by Jennifer Bethel and assistant directors Kelsy Vestin and Jennifer Bak.

This is Shakespeare on the Edge's 14th year overall but its 10th year of performing full-length, unabridged Shakespeare plays.

Members of the public can get involved in the year-round programming on Shakespeare on the Edge: Sideways Shakespeare Company for adults, "Shakespeare! For Kids By Kids!" winter performance, the Shakespeare Project for youth and teens, and Summer Shakespeare for youth and teens. They can also join the efforts of "A Gathering of Rogues and Ruffians - A Renaissance Faire." The Renaissance Faire makes the work of Shakespeare on the Edge possible.
