Hello, Shakespeare Lovers and Supporters!
This message is to assure you that the show goes on and the collaboration between Mendocino College and the Lake County Theatre Company continues in 2020 with a production of Romeo and Juliet on July 24 and 25. Please see the attached poster and note the link to register for the performances, www.lctc.us, which will begin at 7:00 p.m. each evening.
Your past support through financial and in-kind donations has been vitally important to successfully presenting these FREE performances to our community. Residents and visitors alike have been delighted to experience Shakespeare at the Lake for the past four years.
Year #5 brought challenges and the need for a creative approach to staging a play during the limitations posed by following COVID-19 guidelines. The Mendocino College classes in acting and production which provide the actors and technical staff have been conducted online and in small groups. Scenic views of Lake County – taken by cast and crew using cell phones! – will be the “stage” and, combined with an original soundtrack, will amaze everyone.
We still have expenses to bring Shakespeare to our community. We are supporting scholarships for the students enrolled in the summer session Theatre classes and other technical aspects of the production. Your contribution in any amount will be greatly appreciated.
Access to Mendocino College Lake Center and the Ukiah campus is limited; therefore, we request that donations be sent to my address below, with checks payable to Mendocino College.
You may also donate online through the Mendocino College Foundation website at this link by checking OTHER and designating Shakespeare 2020 for payment through PayPal.
Thank you for your consideration and your generous past support. Enjoy the performances!
