Two Gentlemen of Verona 

The annual Shakespeare Festival at Tulane (SFT) does much more than deliver a summertime staging of multiple works by the Bard. Now in its 12th season, SFT works in many partnerships, including a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts' Shakespeare in American Communities program, aimed at greater community involvement. One result of this effort is the festival's intern training program, which offers actors and theater artists ages 15 and older with some stage experience the chance to spend their summer immersed in the environment of a professional theatrical production. Since June 7, the program has worked on Shakespeare's Two Gentlemen of Verona. Under director Gary Rucker, the cast and crew of aspiring thespians present the playwright's look at two friends in northern Italy that take different paths: Proteus (Michael Santora), bound by what he thinks is love and his pattern of deceit, and Valentine (Evan Cleaver), who stands as the true gentleman. Tickets are $12 adults, $10 students and children.

7:30 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday, Aug. 2-5; 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 6

Tulane University, Dixon Hall Annex, Lupin Theatre, 865-5105, ext. 7; www.neworleansshakespeare.com
