    PLYMOUTH — The President Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site in Plymouth will be alive this weekend with William Shakespeare and the best in blues music.

    “Stand Up Shakespeare!” is contemporary Bard-based entertainment featuring the best of Shakespeare’s canon. “Stand Up Shakespeare!” has performed annually in Vermont for 13 years and there will be comedy, tragedy, music and more.

    The performance is at noon today at the Union Christian Church on the historic site.

    “We’re thrilled to host ‘Stand Up Shakespeare!’ again this Labor Day weekend for its annual show. We can’t wait to see what new surprises this dedicated group brings to us,” Diane Kemble, education director of the Calvin Coolidge Memorial Foundation, said.

    The ninth annual Plymouth Folk and Blues Festival is also taking place from 2 to 5 p.m. today and Sunday at the historic site. The folk and blues festival attracts Vermont and nationally known musicians and is the signature end of summer events in the Okemo Valley, according to event organizers.

    Both events are free and the music festival will take place rain or shine. For more information, call 672-3773 or visit www.plymouthfolk.com.
