HAPPY BIRTHDAY, WM SHAKESPEARE was great fun!

We had a great celebration last night at Tellus360.  Thanks to everyone who came out last night.  Thanks to our sword fighters (3 fights!), our actors (5 pop-ups), our musicians (Trixie Greiner and Bon Accord), our board and everyone who believes and supports free Shakespeare for all.  We look forward to doing it all over again next year – but of course with a twist.
