American Shakespeare Center Must Survive and Thrive


Things are getting tougher all the time for Shakespeare companies in America. Now the American Shakespeare Center is running a fund-raising campaign to keep its lights on. If it goes dark, a town and a county will die, but also the tradition. The ASC at the Blackfriars Playhouse has brought a new vitality to the Shenandoah Valley, and it is the most unique theater experience in America. It would be an undeniable tragedy if the American Shakespeare Center went dark.

Please donate if you can. ASC is a nonprofit 501(c)(3). ASC needs to raise $250,000 by the end of January! Anything you can spare would be greatly appreciated.
If you're poor and can't donate, please at least join the Facebook Cause.

Like you - I'd love to get the word out that the ASC is a treasure. It probably won't make a big difference but I did post a lens about my experience at the Blackfriars Playhouse at http://www.squidoo.com/lensmaster/new_workshop/American-Shakespeare-Center
