For the past three years, community members from the corporate sector fearlessly took to the stage in productions of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Tempest, and Twelfth Night to raise funds for Shakespeare In Action’s subsidized ticket program. Their generosity has helped to foster literacy, enhance creativity and promote speech arts for youth at risk in Toronto’s priority neighborhoods.
This year, we are looking for a group of courageous community members to volunteer their time to rehearse and perform an abridged version of one of Shakespeare’s most beloved tales of mistaken identity, The Comedy of Errors, at the Historic Arts and Letters Club of Toronto.
Upon registration, each champion will make a tax deductible deposit of $100.00, and will commit to attending scheduled rehearsals, selling a minimum of 8 tickets to the final performance on March 25, 2015.
To register, click on the Register Now button below! The deadline to register to December 19, 2014.
