Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Will is coming to the 'Ville -- and you're invited to see it all.

It's an eight-month long, city-wide celebration to honor William Shakespeare. The initiative is spearheaded by the Frazier History Museum, the University of Louisville, and the Louisville Free Public Library.

Events begin this month and continue throughout the year.

"At the Frazier, we are going to have expanded programming around Shakespeare," said Jane Adam of the Frazier History Museum. "We are going to have our great teaching artists who will perform up to three Shakespeare interpretations a day and will have all kinds of programs for all kinds of groups: field trips, family days, professional development sessions and weekly gallery lessons by U of L faculty."

The celebration is part of the international commemoration of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death.
