There is a new Shakespeare play coming to the Marquette County area called "King Lear".
The play is a tragedy based on a king who gives up most of what he owns to the daughter who loves him the most.
"King Lear" is in the beginning stages and Sunday was the first day the cast came together to work on their lines.
Director Denise Clark said the community is invited to see the actors before they take the stage next August.
"Our hope is that we're going to get a following of folks that will see how a show organically grows as the actors become more familiar and grow into their roles," said Denise Clark.
