Lane Davies takes to the stage -- and the classroom -- in the name of Shakespeare

We all know how Lane Davies of our beloved "Santa Barbara" lives and breathes Shakespeare. Since "SB" left the airwaves (and even before), the original Mason Capwell has been involved with the Santa Susana Repertory company and the Kingsmen Shakespeare Festival in Thousand Oaks, Calif., and the Tennessee Shakespeare Festival in Middle Tennessee, as well as productions in his native Georgia.

Now, Davies is returning to Tennessee this summer for two quick productions, "Romeo and Juliet" and "Midsummer Night's Dream" in June and July.

But Davies is also teaching Shakespeare, as well, at The Webb School in Bell Buckle, Tennessee. His focus? "Henry V."

You can read a new interview with Davies at the Shelbyville (Tenn.) Times-Gazette (thanks to Terri for posting the link in Facebook). And learn more about the Tennessee Shakespeare Festival at its own site.
