The Shakespeare Challenge

April 6, 2016 to April 6, 2016

For the past four years, community members from the corporate sector fearlessly took to the stage in productions of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Tempest, Twelfth Night, and The Comedy of Errors to raise funds for Shakespeare In Action’s educational programming. Their generosity has helped to foster literacy, enhance creativity and promote speech arts for youth at risk in Toronto’s priority neighborhoods.

Each year, these challenge champions have come together to unleash their inner thespian, and under the direction of Shakespeare in Action’s renowned Artistic Director Michael Kelly, rehearsed and performed an abridged version of a Shakespearean play. In a race against time, these brave souls rehearsed one night a week for eight weeks to prepare and present a memorable production for friends, family, and colleagues. That’s the Shakespeare Challenge!
