Honoring John Douglas Thompson &

the Hunts Point Children's Shakespeare Ensemble


This event will celebrate another glorious season of Shakespeare in New York City and the artists that bring his work to life. Join us for this special evening that will include cocktails and light hors d'oeuvres. This year, we will award The Shakespeare Medal to one of New York City's finest interpreters of Shakespeare's works, and long-time friend of The Shakespeare Society, John Douglas Thompson. We will also celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Hunts Point Children's Shakespeare Ensemble. Students from the 2016-17 Ensemble will perform excerpts from their latest production, Romeo and Juliet!

The Playing Shakespeare Celebration is The Shakespeare Society's most significant annual fundraising event. All proceeds are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. Your support is essential.
