Bard to the Bone, BSF’s Shakespeare Appreciation Society, meets every other month for a discussion about a specific aspect of Elizabethan/Jacobean theatre. 


Enjoy lively conversation with fellow Shakespeare buffs and enrich your understanding of the Bard’s work and its relevance to our modern world. 


Support us at for early updates, special announcements, and online meeting codes.

Recorded meetings are now posted to our YouTube Channel!

We hope you'll join us on the 2nd Thursday of every month at 7pm

(Zoom link to be announced on our Patreon Page!)

Upcoming Topics (Please note the schedule has changed!):


August 2022 - Twelfth Night and Queerness: Cross-dressing, gender identity in character and performance, declarations of love! What does the text support and how do we interpret it?

October 2022 - A Month of Miriam: Join any one of our Thursday Readings as we read The Tragedy of Miriam by Elizabeth Cary!

December 2022 - The Music of Shakespeare's Plays: BSF uses contemporary music familiar to our modern day audiences during our performances, much as The Lord Chamberlain's Men used the songs of their day. What were some of the actual songs from the 1600's, what did they sound like, and how were they used?
