Homeschool Shakespearean Troupe Celebrates 25 Years

Homeschool Shakespearean Troupe Celebrates 25 Years

The Southern Maine Association of Shakespearean Homeschoolers will celebrate their 25th anniversary with two encore presentations of The Comedy of Errors.

Founded in 1993 by Pastor Samuel Richards, the group’s vision is “to help students grow intellectually, socially and spiritually while learning about William Shakespeare from a Christian perspective, and to show God’s love and grace through their production of his plays.”

The non-profit organization relies on donations for all of their funding. The director, Sam Richards, is married with six children and teaches Shakespeare to homeschoolers.

Show times for The Comedy of Errors are 6:30 p.m. on June 16th and 17th at the Winthrop Performing Arts Center. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door. For more information, you can visit SMASH’s website or call their box office at 207-558-5462.

Tim Hawkins Finds Humor in Homeschooling

Tim Hawkins – Homeschooling Is Something to Laugh About

A homeschooling father of four, Hawkins gets “new material daily from the perils of marriage, parenting, and homeschooling.” His comedy routines regularly include references to some of the laughable moments he has experienced as the father of children who range in age from seven to 17. At a recent performance, Hawkins gently poked fun at the mistaken notion that homeschooled children spend most of their time at home. “Hey, are there any homeschoolers here tonight?” he asked the sold-out crowd. To the cheer that went up from a large section of the audience he replied, “How’s it feel to get out?” The laughter that followed was his answer.
