A theater project in Jersey City by Actors Shakespeare Company

The Actors Shakespeare Company at New Jersey City University has been providing immediate and intimate theater to the people of Jersey City and all of Hudson County for 11 years with the support of the university and the generous donations of our patrons.  However, with public funds drying up and tightening budgets for universities, we need your help to ensure that this season is our best yet. 

This $10,000 will guarantee that we can expand our season to include two fully staged Shakespeare productions as well as other theater events throughout the year.  The money will also allow us to increase our reach by putting on an outdoor production of The Tempest on Hudson County’s waterfront.  Lastly, it will allow us to reach even more people in the community by reducing our ticket prices.

The season is called Rough Magic because Shakespeare is full of powerful, transformative magic.  However, the real magic at work here isn’t the sorcery of Prospero or the mystical powers of the witches of Macbeth.  The true magic is an audience being transfixed and transformed by a powerful story in the hands of talented actors in an intimate setting.  The Actors Shakespeare Company needs your help in providing that magic the people of Hudson County. 

Much will happen in the following weeks, and we promise to keep you informed every step of the way.  Follow along on Facebook, on Twitter, on our website at http://www.ascnj.org/ and here on our Kickstarter page.  Thanks to everyone who has supported the ASC over the years, and thanks to all our new friends who are helping us forge an even brighter future.
