The Shakespeare Challenge

 

The Sixth Annual Shakespeare Challenge has come to a close, and what a great success !

The team here at Shakespeare in Action would like to give an enormous thank you to our fantastic donors, talented actors, and incredible audience.  Your generosity has helped to foster literacy, enhance creativity and promote speech arts for youth at risk in Toronto’s priority neighbourhoods.

 

This year, The Challenge featured fifteen community members coming together to unleash their inner thespian under the direction of Shakespeare in Action’s renowned Artistic Director Michael Kelly in Much Ado About Nothing. In a race against time, these brave souls rehearsed one night a week for eight weeks to prepare and present this memorable production.
