Thank you Shakespeare superheroes! Thanks to contributions from 27 generous donors, plus the matching support of ArtsFund, we reached our campaign goal of $7,500! This funding will fuel our new program: The First One’s On Us. Thanks to you support, we will give away 20 free Shakespeare workshops to schools in the Puget Sound region during the 2014-15 school year!
Every school year, Seattle Shakespeare Company brings classical theatre to life for more than 19,000 students across Washington State through our in-school workshops, residencies, and professional touring productions. Thanks to your donations, we will be able to reach an entirely new group of schools and students this year!
The 20 workshops funded through The First One’s On Us campaign will reach 600 students this school year and lay the groundwork to return to their schools for years to come. We’ve seen that once a school takes the leap and hosts their first workshop, they fall in love with our interactive approach and include us as a key partner in their Shakespeare curricula each year.
Thank you for making The First One’s On Us program possible. Even though we reached goal on this campaign, our education department is always in need of more funding for scholarships! If you would like to make a contribution designated to our education programs, please click the link below.
