FREE. (Donations are appreciated!)

Summer is often a popular time for theaters and festivals across the country to produce free Shakespeare for their cities. Obviously things are different this year, so we are bringing Shakespeare to you online!

Grab a drink or a snack, pull up to your screen, and let’s enjoy some Shakespeare “together.” Local professional actors will share Shakespeare monologues or passages they have always loved and/or wanted to perform LIVE in these free, Zoom events. Audience members are invited to submit  requests for your favorite Shakespeare as well – and if you yourself would like to do a reading at one of our Zoom gatherings, we’d love to hear it! Email shannon@mainstreettheater.com to submit a request or submit yourself for reading. (The number of requests is limited and must be submitted by Aug. 3 at 3pm. NOTE: August 10 is now full re participants. Thank you for your interest!)

Participating BYOBard actors to date (spread out over both July 27 at August 10) are: Callina Anderson, Michelle Britton, Rutherford Cravens, Lindsay Ehrhardt, Connor Flynn, Luis Galindo, Alexandria Garrett, Brad Goertz, Joel Grothe, Deborah Hope, Jessie Hyder, Bonnie Langthorn, Leslie Lenert, Shunté Lofton, Alyssa Marek, Jerry Miller, Shanae’a Moore, MaryAnna Nagorski, Rachel Ollagnon, Joel Sandel, Skyler Sinclair, Jordan Tannous, and Blake Weir.
