Shakespeare wrote in Venus and Adonis that “gold that’s put to use more gold begets.” We’re not certain, but the Bard’s poem may have been a fundraising pitch!
GreenStage is gearing up for our 27th season of FREE Shakespeare in the Park! We will be performing full-length productions of The Two Noble Kinsmen and Much Ado About Nothing, plus Backyard Bard versions of The Two Gentlemen of Verona and Macbeth. We're also offering nine educational Shakespeare Summer Camps for Kids.
Your financial support helps make that all happen, and the Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG event on May 5 is the perfect time to make a contribution. This year's theme for GiveBIG is "Day of Champions," and we find that fitting at GreenStage, where we've taken to calling our acting troupe the "Legion of Kaboom!" because we completed Shakespeare's canon last summer. Last year during GiveBIG generous champions contributed almost $5,000 to GreenStage, which was most helpful as we prepared for the summer season. The foundation kicks in additional stretch dollars, so your gift to GreenStage goes even further. Plus, every donation has a chance to win a “golden ticket” that means a bonus $1,000 contribution to the recipient organization.
More reasons to give
This year, we’re adding our own incentives to give. Each person who donates to GreenStage through GiveBIG on May 5 will be entered to win a GreenStage Queen’s Box Experience at the performance of their choice. The Queen’s Box, it should go without saying, is the best seat in the house. We’ll reserve your spot front and center, and provide you with comfy chairs and a basket of snacks, beverages, and chocolate Shakespeare coins.
Plus, anyone who donates $100 or more will receive an official GreenStage picnic blanket—a perfect companion for your Shakespeare in the Park experience!
