Cassidy Cash produces a weekly video series on William Shakespeare for her YouTube Channel, That Shakespeare Girl. Cassidy’s work focuses on the relationships between Shakespeare’s text and performance—particularly, but not exclusively on original practice. She explores the social and intellectual context of the text applied in a wide range of media.
She regularly writes articles and personal essays about Shakespeare in both print and digital media. Cassidy has worked as an educator for 15 years, served as the President of the English Honor Society, Sigma Tau Delta, at the University of Montevallo, majored in Shakespeare for her Bachelor’s degree, where she earned among friends (and several professors) the title of “That Shakespeare Girl” for her enthusiasm for all things Shakespeare. She developed the concept for her first book on Shakespeare as an entrepreneur while earning her Masters in Engineering from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
She serves an actively engaged community via her blog, Cassidy Cash: That Shakespeare Girl, and Facebook page sharing research and resources on William Shakespeare’s life, Renaissance England, and Original Practice Techniques. Her passion is helping storytellers understand the context of Shakespeare’s plays in order to inform their perspective on performance, share the power of education, and ultimately create more polymaths.
Cassidy and her husband Tim live in Birmingham, AL with their two sons and way more pets than what’s reasonable.
