TWELFTH NIGHT
Other
July 10, 11, 12, 13, 18 & 19 - 2014

11th Annual Shakespeare on the Green production
Directed by Sara Zimmerman
Adapted by Peter Barbieri, Jr.

TWELFTH NIGHT is a time-honored Shakespearean comedy that involves love triangles, cross dressing, mistaken identity and a whole lot more. Shakespeare on the Green's inaugural production (2004) was presented in a traditional style.
This time, there will be a modern twist. From the raucous night life of Illyria to real time disasters, to the lives of the rich and famous, this classic tale will be played out in a fast paced, familiar, almost reality show setting.

Fairfield County Giving Day
Other
MARCH 6, 2015

Curtain Call, Stamford's longest-running and only year-round, nonprofit producing theatre, is in the running for a $25,000 prize! I know many of you will be supporting various other nonprofits in this endeavor, but if you can help us with a minimum $10.00 tax-deductible contribution, that would be AWESOME!

We provide programming by and for the community in our two theatres at The Sterling Farms Complex on Newfield Avenue, Stamford. This year we will have have 158 performances over 40 weekends, with some kind of activity of the property 342 days. Fundraising for all of this is always the most challenging.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
Go online to 
www.fcgives.org between 12:01AM and 11:59PM, March 7 and make your contribution(s). It's that simple. Just be sure to write in CURTAIN CALL as your charity of choice. Of course contributions of greater amounts will always be appreciated and accepted. And you can also contribute multiple times throughout the day. Write to me for details: Lou@curtaincallinc.com



(Golde, I know we're poor, but come on,
just ten bucks to Curtain Call won't kill us.)

Most importantly, the domino effect can help us win this. Please ask your extended family and friends to help as well.

While we are competing with many other Fairfield County nonprofits, we have always shown to be a small but mighty engine and I truly believe we can win this.

Please help spread the word. Remember, it's only during the 24 hour period, 12:01am to 11:59pm, March 7.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

MOST SINCERELY, 
Lou Ursone
