Allegheny Regional Asset District

For over 25 years, the Allegheny Regional Asset District – RAD – has invested in Allegheny County's quality of life through financial support of libraries, parks and trails, arts and cultural organizations, regional attractions, sports and civic facilities, and public transit.

With half of the proceeds from Allegheny County's additional one percent sales and use tax, RAD has invested more than $2 billion in our regional assets since its inception. An additional $2 billion has gone directly to the County and its 128 municipalities for property tax relief and local government services. RAD is a time-tested solution that works for the economy, for assets, for citizens, for municipalities – for all. RAD works here.

PICT Classical Theatre - Hamlet In His Own Words: A Four Part Webinar Series

If asked to name any of Shakespeare’s plays, the average person will most surely have Hamlet in the top three. It is perhaps his most famous play, most studied play, and probably his most quoted – and misquoted.

 

No other character in Shakespeare is quite so self-analytical. Over the next four weeks, we are going to listen to Hamlet discussing and examining himself ‘in his own words.’ We will examine what he thinks of himself and his situation; what draws him towards and causes him to resist the actions that he must inevitably take to avenge his father’s murder. Join us each Friday as we travel with Hamlet from mild academic to almost a King.

 

This webinar series is free and appropriate for all ages. Join us Fridays from 2-3pm ET for these lively, interactive hours of discussion.
