Actors' Shakespeare Project welcomes those of all backgrounds to join in our mission of bringing Shakespeare's words into the voices, bodies and imaginations of our community.
One could argue that words have no meaning until they are heard and understood, and we work to strengthen that community foundation by keeping it energized through relationships with each other, our audience, the youth and adults who participate in our education programs, and this city.
We are always looking to bring new members into our community and there are a number of ways to get involved whether by seeing a play, attending an event, taking a class, subscribing, volunteering or donating. We cherish the opportunity to work with you.
Please take a moment to explore the opportunities to get involved with our company or, get in touch if you have an idea of your own.
Your tax-deductible donation will give us the resources we need to sustain our ardent desire to bring you top-notch Shakespeare in intimate local spaces. If you would like to discuss the options for giving, please contact us at any time. Our donors are listed in the Honor Roll in the programs and your gift is tax-deductible.
Make your check out to the Actors' Shakespeare Project 191 Highland Avenue Suite 2B Somerville, MA 02143
