About Sweet Tea Shakespeare

We are a not-for-profit theatre company and training ground inspired by Shakespeare and the early modern spirit, gathered in a diverse community around a common love for the magic of story, song, and stagecraft.

We’re good at stringing small things together and building everything from the ground up - lights, music, sets, all of the above. Your membership allows us to do that. Our members bring us love, joy, and encouragement that allows our artistry to continue to grow. If you are considering becoming a Member of our community through Patreon, your membership turns into a big impact for us, from the artists who are able to join us to the productions we are able to achieve. No matter what tier you decide to join, know that your impact is real and tangible.

We have two chapters based in Fayetteville and Raleigh, North Carolina, but our Members and community stretch across the country. When you become a member of our community at any level of your choosing, it is akin to a subscription for our season - whatever tier you join brings you deeper into our community, whether that is how many tickets you can distribute among family and friends, or the Sweet Tea swag you can show off as a proud member of our community. Whether you are here, near, or far, we are all chapters of the same book, and we would love for you to be part of our evolving story as a Member!
