Cassidy Cash produces a weekly video series on William Shakespeare for her YouTube Channel, That Shakespeare Girl, hosts a membership community for Shakespeare enthusiasts, writes weekly blog articles, and contributes regularly to digital publications on the life and times of William Shakespeare.
Cassidy believes that understanding the history of Shakespeare’s life and the culture of Renaissance England is essential to the study of Shakespeare’s plays. 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 each week using intriguing questions to fuel a mini-research project, seeking evidence to support a plausible (or not?) conclusion on what we know, and don’t know, about William Shakespeare. 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 a vibrant Shakespearean conversation among people who love to learn about The Bard.
Cassidy and her husband Tim live in Birmingham, AL with their two sons and way more pets than what’s reasonable.
