My Personal Mini-Bash
Of the many things I miss while staying at home, one of the most jarring ommissions is this -- heading into the theater to be transported with all my senses through the power of live performance. Seattle Shakespeare Company is my happy place. The language I love, the actors who move me, the designers and directors who reach into my heart and take me to new places. I miss laughing out loud together. Holding our collective breath, seeing love bloom, watching worlds collide. I tell myself--this won't last forever. We will be together again soon. And in the meantime, holding memories close of favorite productions seen both inside and out in the parks, we do what we can to make sure Seattle Shakes is strong. Ready to begin again when all lights turn GREEN (instead of dimming). Let's go! Let's give! Let's celebrate!
As a board member for the past 7 years, my appreciation and love for this company has only grown. Seattle Shakespeare is a professional, all-classical, year-round theatre company that reaches across barriers of income, geography, and education to bring classical theatre to life for everyone in Washington State. This organization has a remarkable track record with kids, with informed gender policies, thoughtful inclusion, and an insistence that Shakespeare is NOT for the priviledged few. Whether you're in a seat at the Center Theatre or on the grass at Luther Burbank Park or in a school auditorium in Wenatchee, you are part of Seattle Shakespeare.
Bill's Bash is Seattle Shakespeare Company's annual fundraiser, happening online for the very first time. Help me welcome new audiences, new students, and new artists into this work by making a gift today and joining the on-line auction starting April 27. Thank you!
