The Intown Club prides itself on knowing the people who are making positive achievements in Greater Cleveland. They were thrilled to meet ESU-Cleveland President Cathy Fishbach and Shakespearean specialist Ann Hasenohrl, who spoke about Cleveland's first All-City Shakespeare Festival. 
At the Club's facility at Playhouse Square, about 75 members watched ESU's upbeat slide show, which prompted a desire for even more information. 
The audience learned that the Festival is the culmination of a year of events that enrich high school students in literacy, specifically learning by actually performing Shakespeare. The path begins with in-school workshops by professional actors from Great Lakes Theater, then in-school competitions, followed-up by a regional competition with the winner going to the national competition in New York City. Whatever stage of development students are in, everyone comes together to share their enthusiasm at the non-competitive  All-City Shakespeare Festival. 
It was announced that the 2018 Festival, students will present Shakespeare's play "Romeo and Juliet". 
Following up, Intown's Program Chair, Betsy Stueber, said "The feedback from our members and guests has been fantastic! You have made a valuable contribution to our Monday luncheon program which strives to educate, enrich and entertain the Intown membership."
