The evening will feature a star-studded cast including Sir Paul McCartney, Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson and William Shatner. Additional participants will be announced in the coming weeks. Simply Shakespeare is one of Los Angeles’ most anticipated annual fundraising events and features a hilarious and entertaining evening of impromptu Shakespeare and song.
For more than two decades, the folks at Simply Shakespeare have convened once a year to offer “a hilarious and entertaining evening of impromptu Shakespeare and song.” This year, they’re adding a former Beatle to the mix.
Since 1985, The Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles has been a vibrant hub of unique programs, performances and events designed to make Shakespeare accessible and engaging to all. SCLA continues to build community through its innovative outreach programs including “Will Power to Youth,” an academic enrichment program that combines hands-on artistic experience with paid job training and arts education for at-risk youth. The program has been nationally recognized for its effectiveness in reducing high school dropout rate and delinquency. More importantly, it instills a lasting sense of creativity and competency in the youth who participate.
The auction runs until September 11, and can be accessed via CharityBuzz.
