Get Foolish, Support Shakespeare

Shakespeare may have been a genius, but nobody's perfect. Ale seems to have been the bard's preferred beverage, while he ascribed the consumption of beer to fools. Poor man.

So it's hard to know whether or not Shakespeare would approve of the Threepenny Theatre Company's "Shakesbeer" fundraiser. Personally, I'd like to believe that the writer had just never tasted a good beer, and see this fundraiser as an opportunity to insure others don't suffer that same terrible fate.

Threepenny Theatre (3PT) will host a "Shakesbeer”- themed beer-tasting Saturday, December 14 at Crosstown Arts from 7pm - 10pm. Attendees can sample a variety of local craft beers while taking in selections from Macbeth.

Donations of $10 can be paid at the door or at Kickstarter.com

“We’re taking a risk, and we need the community’s help to make this innovative funding model work,” Shaleen Cholera, 3PT’s Executive Director wrote in a press release. “We recognize that the cost of admission can be a tremendous barrier to many people experiencing theatre. We want to do something different and be something different in this city. We’re throwing a party so we can ask our friends and everyone who supports great theatre in our community for a few dollars. That will help us us to generate the funds we need to produce a season of great shows that everybody can enjoy.”

WHEN: SATURDAY, DECEMBER 14, 7:00 P.M. - 10:00 P.M.
WHERE: CROSSTOWN ARTS, 430 NORTH CLEVELAND AVE
