Despite Erie County’s cuts, Shakespeare in Delaware Park (SDP) has kept on keeping on with their Shakespeare festival. In order to continue the presentation of the second largest outdoor Shakespeare Festival, they need your support. The As You Help Us Campaign was formed after a Family Foundation (that wishes to remain anonymous) authorized a challenge grant of $10,000 to SDP. This Friday (August 12), Saturday (August 13), and Sunday (August 14) will be the closing weekend of As You Like It. All hill donations from audience members will go towards matching the $10,000 grant.
“With the many struggles SDP has faced this year, including budget cuts from Erie County and unsure support from the City of Buffalo, we are proud to be celebrating 36 incredible years of high-quality professional theatre which remains free for the public to enjoy. So join us this weekend at Shakespeare In Delaware Park, enjoy the words of the Bard under a star filled sky in a beautiful Olmsted park and dig a little deeper as every ducat counts just a little bit more.” –SDP
