We are so excited about what is coming this year.
Spokane Shakespeare Society took a short hibernation over the winter, but we are back and ready to kick off our 2nd season in the summer of 2022.
2nd Season Show Announcement
We aren’t great at keeping secrets–we just get too excited–so you may have heard some rumors about what we’ll be bringing to the park this summer. We are happy to confirm the two shows making up our second season. Specific show dates won’t be ready until May, but we do know the months we’ll be bringing these shows to you.
August-September of 2022 will transport you to the fair city of Verona–where S3 will lay its scene of two star-crossed lovers and their misadventures. Yes–our season opener will be Romeo and Juliet. This tragedy will be told in modern times, but the specifics are not yet finalized. We can’t wait to share more with you soon.
September-October of 2022 brings our second show, a new take on how Shakespeare’s tragedies are preventable–if only people would pause and use logic. Goodnight, Desdemona. (Good Morning, Juliet) by Ann-Marie MacDonald is a comedic journey when a professor thinks she can ‘fix’ what Shakespeare got wrong. Will she convince Othello that Desdemona was true? Can she save Romeo and Juliet? You’ll laugh as she does her darnest to keep everyone alive.
S3 Needs You!
We have the shows, but we are still missing critical pieces to make the season a success! If you’ve ever wanted to know you’ve made an impact on a local nonprofit, now is your chance!We are currently seeking our 2022 Artist-in-Residence. This person can be anyone who works within theatre–in any capacity–and is looking to further their craft. We will be accepting applications until April 15. We are also accepting applications for technical positions. This includes our directors, stage managers, and designers! Applications for those interested in directing are due March 31. All others are due May 1. Beyond artists, we are seeking support for the 2022 season. We’re increasing our transparency and asking for specific donation amounts for the areas we write checks–actors, directors, materials, rights, etc. We always say our funding goes directly back into the productions. Now you can choose what we do with it. We hope you’ll consider supporting S3 in our efforts to bring professional theatre to Spokane without the barrier of a ticket cost.
Join S3 and the Spokane Party Trolley as we roll into the St. Patrick’s Day Parade this Saturday–March 12. The parade starts at noon and will wrap around downtown Spokane. View the route and make a plan to save your spot as we celebrate
St. Patrick’s Day in style.
