What is the Shakespeare Challenge?
Now in its seventh year, community members from the corporate sector fearlessly take to the stage in productions of Shakespeare to raise funds for Shakespeare in Action’s educational programming. Their generosity has helped to foster literacy, enhance creativity and promote speech arts for youth at risk in Toronto’s Neighbourhood Improvement Areas.
