Spark your imagination
Well that was fun!
You know how, every year, Promethean returns to the Red Lion Pub to stage a short set of Shakespeare scenes – heartfelt, quirky and funny, centered around a common theme? Well no pubs this year. Sigh. BUT THAT DIDN’T STOP US! On Saturday, May 9th, many of you tuned to watch your favorite scenes reinterpreted through the lens of a computer camera and a global pandemic. Did you miss the live event? Or do you want to see it again? Click here for a peek. And click here if you want to learn more about the Prometheans who made the 2020 Virtual Evening of Shakespeare possible!
We’re especially grateful for all of our friends who donated at the live event. If you want to chip in just click the “DONATE” button below. And if you’d like additional information about sponsoring an event or making an in-kind donation, send us an email. If times are tight and you just want to tag along, well, that’s good too. We’re happy to have you. Regardless of how you support Promethean Theatre Ensemble, know that you have our sincere gratitude!
Are you able to donate to help PTE offset the financial burden placed on us by the sudden closing of our hit show, Mrs. Warren’s Profession, and the uncertain conclusion of Season 14? We’d love it if you would. Any amount, no matter how small, will be deeply appreciated.
Until we can join together again for some entertaining theatre that fuses simplicity of design with intelligent, passionate storytelling, keep your imagination burning bright.
Five Jeff nominations!
