About

Sweet Tea Shakespeare started as a dream. A dream to bring the plays of Shakespeare alive for new audiences. To show those audiences that words penned 400 years ago are still relevant. A dream for characters to come alive and connect with audiences. The dream started small and has grown to serve thousands of theatre goers every year.

Shakespeare came from humble beginnings. The son of a glove-maker, he charted his own course by becoming a playwright (can you imagine that dinner conversation?). Shakespeare’s band of merry men was no larger than our own group of beloved actors. 12-15 passionate storytellers transforming the complex issues of their time and making them available for everyone.

We like small. We’re good at small. We're good at stringing small things together and making the end product bigger than the sum of its parts. We put our shows up every night from the ground up – lights, music, sets, all of it. It looks daunting, but almost by magic, it happens.

Your gift to us is like that. Small is actually mighty. The Big Gift is always needed and very welcome, but we know that small gifts add up in big ways. 5 bucks a month turns into $60 a year which helps us keep the lights going. $10 per month magically turns into $120 per year which helps us get an actor from the Triangle back and forth to rehearsal. $50 per month is actually $600 per year, helping create costumes for actors. Your impact is real and tangible.

Sweet Tea Shakespeare takes small gifts and makes them big impact.

There are so many other reasons to give; it shows grant organizations that the community believes in our work, it builds actor confidence that the work they do matters, and it could be tax deductible!
