Presented by Spur of the Moment Shakespeare Collective. #ShakesbeersShowdown is where Torontos hottest indie Shakespeare companies face-off in a battle of winner-takes-all, loser-drinks-most, as contestants cold read scenes from Shakespeares notoriously-hard-to-read First Folio. The winner is crowned the revered Shakesbeers Showdown Heavyweight Champion the losers get… a lot of beer. This years theme: Jurassic Bard.
For the first time ever, the SOTMSC opens up #ShakesbeersShowdown to all companies and members of the public. Companies do not have to be Shakespeare-based, and you dont even have to have a company: there is a slot available for those without theatre companies to apply as a part of the people.
Apr 27 from 7-10:30 pm. $25, stu/arts workers $18. See ticket page for more details.
All funds raised go towards the 2018 Shakespeare-In-Hospitals Program, set to launch this fall.
