A year ago, through your encouragement and support, Henley Street Theatre and Richmond Shakespeare began a beautiful journey together that would challenge us to take the best of each company, and bring us together to form one vibrant theatre organization. This fall we began the final phase of our merger by launching our strategic planning and branding process. This is perhaps the most thrilling part of our adventure together, as we crystallize our future. We could not be more excited to be in this place of growth and rediscovery. Thank you for supporting us through this journey!
Our first season together was rich with extraordinary moments. Can you ever forget…
- Algernon in his satin dressing gown, dramatically draped across a divan in The Importance of Being Earnest,idly nibbling on a cucumber sandwich?
- That thrill of danger when Dr. Miranda was left tied and hooded throughout intermission of Death and the Maiden at the Gottwald?
- The delight and wonderment when a simple tree suddenly came alive with otherworldly fairies in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, as fireflies flashed under the balmy moon at Agecroft?
We have listened to you, our patrons and supporters. We know you want plays that allow us to connect with each other through beautiful language and engaging conversation, plays that transcend our own time and continue to speak to generations beyond ours. But most importantly, plays that awaken the mind, warm the heart, soothe the soul, and get you in the gut. Plays like this fall’s sumptuous Equivocation—named “the best play in Richmond” by Style Weekly.
Our 2014-15 Season is dynamic; we believe it will resonate with theatre you crave. Your patronage is important. Your financial support is essential. Please consider a gift to Henley Street Theatre and Richmond Shakespeare and be as generous as you can. It is your tax-deducible donation that makes our mission possible.
