My Personal Mini-Bash
I've always loved Shakespeare. I had no choice. My parents had a complete collections which they'd read and quoted. Often. My father's favorite quote might have been "To have a thankless child!". But I'm sure that was about my sister. :-)
Now, the arts are in trouble. As are many other of the things we love. And I know I ask for support for my favorite causes, but I'm asking again if you're able.
The Seattle Shakespeare Company not only produces world class productions, but it also combines two of my favorite loves ... Shakespeare and education. I was fortunate to watch a production they gave to a 9th grade class at a title one school. Seeing the kids respond to Bill's words as the mother nagged Juliet and the raw passion of first teenage love...priceless!
If you can, please consider supporting the Seattle Shakespeare Company.
