Subject: SSE/St Peter--SOS
The Shenandoah Shakespeare Express will perform benefit shows for
tornado-stricken Gustavus Adolphus College in St Peter, MN. On Monday,
April 6th, the SSE will perform Taming of the Shrew at Illusion Theatre
in Minneapolis at 8pm. Coe College, in Cedar Rapids, will sponsor
Richard III on Thursday, April 9th. All proceeds from these two
benefit performances will go to Gustavus Adolphus College to help
rebuild their campus.
The SSE was booked to perform a three-day residency at Gustavus. We
have waived the balance of our fees, and following our Monday night
benefit performance, we will perform two community outreach shows on
Tuesday and Wednesday at the First Lutheran Church in St. Peter.
Macalaster College, in St. Paul, MN, has graciously offered the SSE
lodging to help make our Minneapolis benefit possible.
We hope that those of you in the Minneapolis or St Paul areas will
support our efforts to aid Gustavus Adolphus. Come to the shows. Call
a friend to join you. Thank you.
