Event: Shakespeare at the Shelter

Shakespeare at the Shelter

shakespeare-in-the-shelter-logo-for-shirts

Now in its 4th year, Shakespeare at the Shelter is a summer-long community building project in which Our House clients and alumni come together with staff, volunteer scholars and theater experts to study the work of William Shakespeare, culminating in two performances of some of the Bard’s most famous scenes and monologues. This program invites our clients to challenge themselves intellectually and provides opportunities to hone skills necessary in the workforce (team work and confidence chief among them). It also invites our community to challenge their assumptions about homelessness. It is our great pleasure to invite you to the 4th annual production of Shakespeare at the Shelter, Friday August 7th and Saturday August 8th from 7:30-8:30 p.m.

All money raised by Shakespeare at the Shelter goes to improve the quality of life for Our House clients. Proceeds from this year’s event will go to further improve the Shelter kitchen as well as to purchase laptops for the Learning Center. With the assistance of over 50 generous volunteer groups, we provide 220 meals each day at the Shelter. Laptops for the Learning Center will support our adult education and employment services programs which provide support to over 500 shelter residents and community members each year.
