Created August 24, 2018
Please help Rubber City Theatre (RCT) bring our Shakesqueer project to the stage.  This world premier play reimagines Shakespeare through the lives of LGBTQ+ characters. Funding for the Shakesqueer Project is in part from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, as part of its Knight Arts Challenge.  The Knight Arts Challenge funds the best ideas for engaging and enriching Akron through the arts.

The first phase of a two-part project, this all-new show will be based on Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew and will revolve around characters representative of the LGBTQ+ community. 

This campaign helps RCT take advantage of matching funds from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. For every $1,000.00 raised in this campaign, we will award two tickets to a random donor for the World Premier!

Thank you for your help!
