********** UPCOMING EVENTS**********
Dracula wants your blood, not for himself, but to help the American Red Cross meet the region’s hospital and patient needs. On Thursday, October 17, 2019, from 1pm-6pm, Chesapeake Shakespeare Company will host a community blood drive in The Studio at 206 East Redwood Street, Fourth Floor, Baltimore, 21202. It’s easy to make an appointment to donate: Visit redcrossblood.org and enter sponsor code SHAKESPEARE in the red Find a Blood Drive box, located at the top of the webpage. Walk-ins are also welcome.
Everyone who donates on October 17 will receive a voucher good for 20% off regular-priced tickets to see a performance of Dracula, by Steven Dietz, adapted from the Bram Stoker novel, on stage through November 2, 2019, at Chesapeake Shakespeare Company.
“It is an act of benevolence to donate and give me — I mean, someone else — a second chance at life,” Dracula says. “I’m looking for victims…excuse me, I meant to say donors. I see that this is a chance for them to make a difference in the city of Baltimore, as there is at this time a critical blood shortage. Please donate to the American Red Cross at my downtown blood drive. If you aren’t able to give, won’t you please spread the word to help make this drive successful?”
You asked for it. It’s here, it’s time for ShakesFear! CSC’s spook-tacular Halloween party! Stick around after the show and get ready to do the monster-mash!
