UPDATE!

We've reached our original goal, and now we're on to the next one. If we can hit $2,000 total by our deadline, we can add pay for the cast and crew to our budget. Please keep spreading the word about Shaking Spears. We've come this far. Let's keep going!

_________________________________________

Celebrated English playwright and poet William Shakespeare penned 10 histories, 10 tragedies, 18 comedies...and zero musicals. 

Until now.

We've taken four of the bard's most famous tragedies (you know, the ones you read in high school) and combined them with the music of pop princess Britney Spears to create a musical comedy with just the right balance of class and crass. Just the way Shakespeare would have liked it.

Our funding goal of $1,000 will pay for performance space, the incentives we've offered, and maybe a few props. Additional funding will go toward rehearsal space, costumes, and compensation for the cast and crew.

Thank you for your support. As William Shakespeare might have said: Neither a borrower nor a lender be. Pledge thy money to a Kickstarter project.
