What do you think when you hear the name Shakespeare? For many, Shakespeare brings to mind stodgy academics, abstruse language and moldy books. However, the Shakespeare Generation thinks differently. Based in Shepherdstown, W.Va., the Shakespeare Generation is a theater company composed entirely of people younger than 21 years old. Clara Rubertas and Sarah Thomas, both 14 at the time, created the Shakespeare Generation in January 2000. Since then, the company has secured grants from The Arts and Humanities Alliance of Jefferson County and produced nine Shakespeare productions.
