Swipe left! That’s a rap on our FIRST show!!! Thank you to all our amazing actors for putting it all together, sourcing costumes and props and building walls and working FOR FREE! We did this as a labour of love and to provide free Shakespeare to all.
No one was paid for their work, we had no budget and board members paid for items needed themselves (lights, flyers, curtains, Go Go Vans, FB boost, ads, indoor rehearsal spaces, insurance, etc). Thank you Ben (Lysander) Isaac (Bottom) and Rebecca (Titania) for that! ALSO, Thank you @aaronographyhk for these amazing photos!
A tremendous thank you to our amazing audiences that showed up!! This picture is from Saturday night and this is close to the end of the play. By then we had lost some people with kids, etc. and not long before this point people had to sit in the aisles, there was no where else to sit! We had a partial standing ovation Saturday before Puck started to announce some things and a full standing ovation on Sunday. We were not expecting it! Thank you! We had no idea people would show up! We had no idea people would love it! The greatest gift of all was when the audience talked to us after the show and some had never even been to the theatre before! Theatre Must be accessible for all and we will always keep it that way. If we can introduce someone to theatre for the first time AND get them to feel something from it- humour, love, sadness, etc, then we have succeeded!
