Why make a donation TODAY BEFORE 6pm (Central) to The Nashville Shakespeare Festival during #TheBigPayback?
... Did you know that in 2021, NSF began producing plays about the Black American experience in collaboration with the Kennie Playhouse Theatre in an effort to bridge communities through theatre? NSF received the Nashville Scene Writer’s Choice 2021 Best of Nashville Award Winner for “Best New Arts Partnership” for presenting August Wilson’s JITNEY and Shakespeare’s TWELFTH NIGHT last summer. This summer, we continue that magic presenting August Wilson’s GEM OF THE OCEAN and Shakespeare’s CYMBELINE. Help make it happen here: http://www.thebigpayback.org/nashvilleshakes

Watched this fabulous performance yesterday...I think it's streaming for one more day? Well worth watching!
Hello all! I hope this finds you well. I'm reaching out to remind you about my invitation to participate in the survey portion of my MLAS exit strategy, "Research for Theatrical Practicum: Understanding Our Community Through Stage Combat." The survey can be found here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/T2HPD2H I'll begin analysis for this research project in the last two weeks of May (17-31). THEREFORE, IF YOU WISH TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS SURVEY, YOU WILL NEED TO COMPLETE IT BY 11:55PM (CST) ON MAY 15TH, 2020. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out. Warm regards, D. Vincent "Sento" Ashby
TO ALL FOLLOWERS OF THIS PAGE: Hello! I am Sento Ashby, a graduate student at Western Illinois University. In pursuit of my Master’s of Liberal Arts and Sciences, I am conducting a two-prong research study for the course I am designing: “Theatrical Practicum: Understanding Our Community Through Stage Combat.” You are cordially invited to voluntarily participate in the first wave of research, a 15-item survey (plus a few demographic questions) meant to gather feedback from the theatrical community on concepts within my curriculum. The purpose of this study is to elevate my pedagogy through incorporating input on definitions and social theories which support my practicum. If you are interested in participating in this study, please follow the link below to view the consent form and continue to the survey, which should take 15 minutes or less of your time. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/T2HPD2H If you do not wish to participate, you may disregard this invitation. Regardless of your choice, thank you for your time and consideration. Warm regards, D. Vincent “Sento” Ashby
Thanks SO MUCH, Nashville Shakespeare Festival, for this marvelous online Birthday Bash! I don't know if I've ever enjoyed Shakespeare's birthday quite this much! Looking forward to the time when we can share this kind of creativity in person...✌️
Where is the link to live stream. I can’t just find it.
