From the Shakespeare Theatre:
This popular sale features one-of-a-kind items from the Theatre’s prop, costume, and scenery stock. Bargain hunters, quilters and drama teachers are sure to find something from the eclectic selection that ranges from gowns to masks, to decorative and furniture items, to scenic elements, to fabric remnants. Every item is priced to sell.
All proceeds from the sale benefit The Shakespeare Theatre’s artistic and educational programs. As a not-for-profit regional theatre, only 58 percent of the annual cost to produce The Shakespeare Theatre’s season of productions and educational programs is earned through ticket sales.
Through the support from corporate, foundation, government sources and donations from individuals, we are able to maintain our Main Stage, Outdoor Stage and educational programming.
Only with such support can The Shakespeare Theatre continue its high-impact initiatives such as the program Shakespeare LIVE!, bringing Shakespeare and other classic works to schools; the Student Matinee Series, which offers middle and high-school students and teachers the opportunity to attend school-time performances of Main Stage productions; and the Summer Professional Training Program, which offers young actors, designers, technicians, and administrators hands-on professional training.
The acclaimed Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey is an independent, professional theater company, whose Main Stage is located on the Drew University campus in Madison.
