Shakespeare on the Sound
For 24 years Shakespeare on the Sound has delighted in sharing Shakespeare’s plays with you.
Therefore, it is with a heavy heart that we must announce the postponement of our 25th Anniversary production of
in Pinkney Park this summer.
The decision to postpone was difficult and painful but one we felt necessary to ensure the safety of our patrons, artists, staff, and community at large.
Additionally, we have suspended our educational tours, in-school workshops, and will be unable to perform our beloved pre-show
Shakespeare in 30 Minutes
this June. We are disheartened to not be able to share live Shakespeare with our local children and families.
Theatre’s beauty lies in the gathering of the people it brings together to participate in the creation of the play: actors, designers, directors, musicians, carpenters, to name a few. But theatre would not be the powerful art form it is without an audience, it would not exist without you: our audience, our community, our family.
Conscious of the ever-changing information regarding Covid-19, we are hopeful that we will be able to find new ways to connect with you over the course of the coming months. Currently, we are working with schools and libraries to provide virtual educational programming for students and adults. As of now, we are uncertain as to whether we will be able to hold summer camps.
We will communicate programming update in future newsletters and on our website.
We have exciting programming scheduled for this coming fall, including our
reunion reading and our holiday reading of
A Christmas Carol
We are working on new and exciting partnerships with local organizations and cannot wait to share what we have in store.
With the cancellation of our 2020 summer production, our educational tours and workshops, and our spring fundraising event, we are projecting a significant loss that threatens our livelihood as an arts organization. These uncertain times are difficult for everyone; if you have it in your means, your financial support would mean the world.
If you value Shakespeare on Sound in your community and would like to ensure a 25th season, please consider a tax-deductible donation of any amount.
We hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe, and we cannot wait to see you all again someday soon.
