Hey Philly! Show us Your Shakespeare!

"Show us Your Shakespeare!" Got an image of yourself as a Shakespearean character?  Get on Facebook and post it on the "Kill Shakespeare: Live Graphic Novel" Facebook Event page https://www.facebook.com/events/1455714681382474/ to receive a personalized discount code to save $5 per ticket.  All who redeem the code will be entered into a drawing to win the grand prize, a signed copy of "Kill Shakespeare" by Anthony Del Col and Conor McCreery or one of 5 other great Kill Shakespeare prizes!  The drawing for the grand prize will take place immediately following the Saturday Sept. 13, 10pm show.  The winner will be contacted to arrange prize delivery. (Details on how to redeem the ticket offer will be sent via Facebook messenger to the individual who posts the image, one code per person.)
But don't just show us your Shakespeare, tell us why you love it, too. When you post your picture, feel free to write a short blurb about why you love the costume, the character, or the bard himself! Don't have facebook, but still want to play along? Wear your costume to save $5 at the door, if space is available.
And remember, it doesn't have to be from a production! Ever dreamed of mounting a steampunk Hamlet? A zombie Macbeth? Post your image and your idea! Now’s your chance to strut your stuff, show off your threads, and celebrate how much Philly loves the bard!

And indeed now is the perfect time to show that love.  Will Shakespeare is celebrating his 450th birthday and there has been celebrations all over town, not the least of which featured Hear Again Radio Project's own Darin Dunston!  Shakespeare in Clark Park commemorated the Bard's Birthday with a thrilling version of Henry IV!  Here's a picture of Darin from the production.  You can see Darin and other people show their Shakespeare on the event page for "Kill Shakespeare."  https://www.facebook.com/events/1455714681382474/
