BENEFITING: PARTNERSHIP FOR THE PUBLIC GOOD
EVENT DATE: Dec 01, 2016
Make Your Choice for this Year’s Shakespearean Idol
Have you ever yearned to see Buffalo’s civic leaders compete with each other by performing great speeches and poems by William Shakespeare? Of course you have! Click the Register tab on the right to buy your ticket.
On Thursday, December 1, Buffalo will crown its next Shakespearean Idol at the Buffalo History Museum. Esteemed civic leaders will compete for the prize before all-star judges such as Saul Elkin, founder of Shakespeare in Delaware Park, storyteller Karima Amin, and actress and director Annette Christian. But it’s the audience vote that crowns the Idol!
There will also be a special prize for the contestant who receives the most sponsors through our CrowdRise site, so – whether you can attend the contest or not – please take a moment to sponsor your favorite contestant.
All proceeds go to benefit the Partnership for the Public Good, a non-profit group that unites 243 community organizations working to build a better Buffalo.
Shakespearian Idol takes place December 1 at the Buffalo History Museum. Doors open at 7pm, and the contest starts promptly at 7:30pm. After the contest, the audience is invited to stay for drinks and light desserts.
