Shakespeare on the Lake

“ShakespeareWorks, an organization that has brought the Bard’s work to Toronto schools for several years, is raising $1.5-million to build a tent theatre at Ashbridge’s Bay, in the east end of the city.” The project is modeled on Vancouver’s successful summer Shakespeare series, and the company’s inaugural season kicks off in June. But concerns remain about promised federal funding which has yet to materialize, and the season will likely launch with barely enough cash on hand to meet expenses.
