WKNO and TSC hosting costume exhibit and documentary screening

WKNO-TV/FM and Tennessee Shakespeare Company (TSC) are inviting the public to the WKNO Digital Media Center on Sunday, January 20 at 2:00 p.m. for a one-hour documentary viewing and unveiling of a new Shakespearean costume exhibit, curated by TSC designer Bruce Bui. The exhibit and screening accompany the upcoming PBS series Shakespeare Uncovered. Tickets are free but limited, and can be reserved at wkno.org.

"The Apparel Oft Proclaims the Man*" – A "Shakespeare Uncovered" Costume Exhibit will be unveiled at an opening reception on January 20, followed by a showing of the first episode of Shakespeare Uncovered: "Macbeth with Ethan Hawke". The exhibit will then be available for viewing for a limited engagement through January 31 during office hours at WKNO.

The exhibit and screening kick off several events that WKNO and TSC will host together as part of a community-wide project to celebrate the works of Shakespeare and expose the community to his plays. The two organizations will hold special events – such as screenings and workshops – produce special pieces for television and radio, and much more thanks to a national grant from WNET in New York for the PBS series, Shakespeare Uncovered.

The partnership between TSC and WKNO is one of only ten such collaborations between public television stations and Shakespeare companies in the United States to receive the grant by WNET.

Shakespeare Uncovered airs Fridays at 8:00 p.m. on WKNO2, beginning January 25, and Sundays at 4:00 p.m., beginning January 27, on WKNO/Channel 10. A complete schedule is available at wkno.org.

Shakespeare Uncovered is made possible by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the generous support of the project's lead foundation sponsor, the Howard and Abby Milstein Foundation. Major funding is also provided by Rosalind P. Walter, The Polonsky Foundation, Virginia and Dana Randt, the LuEsther T. Mertz Charitable Trust, and PBS.

Highlights of TSC's 2013-14 Season

Annual Report | July 2014

You helped make our Sixth Season one of our most successful and far-reaching years yet.

The season began in 2013 with our municipal government eliminating all of TSC's education funding for our community and then letting us know our office lease would not be renewed.

But take a look at what you helped us accomplish after that through June 2014...
