The 30th season of the Texas Shakespeare Festival is underway on the Kilgore College campus.
In 32 days, this professional company stages 54 Shakespearian performances.
Artistic director Raymond Caldwell started the festival. He never imagined it would be so successful. Caldwell and his small staff sift through more than 3,000 resumes to fill 22 summer acting jobs. They go to New York and Chicago to hold auditions. Most of the actors, he says, are fresh out of college.
