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.”
