Subject:     Set the World on Fire with Shakespeare

Dear Shakespeare Friend:

We are pleased to report that Austin Shakespeare's debut of Macbeth at 
the Long Center was a "super success," receiving excellent reviews and 
performing before sold out houses. Building on this momentum, we are 
focusing on our outreach programs for the youth of Central Texas by 
offering workshops and school performances. By celebrating the language 
of Shakespeare, young people not only improve their vocabulary and 
reading comprehension, they simply fall in love with the beauty of the 
English language. The more deeply our actors and directors can work with 
young people, the more success we can achieve. To this end, we are 
committed to doubling the number of hours spent with students this year

Shakespeare causes everyone he touches to stretch to become nobler. Both 
young people and adults feel this. The unique spirit of youth -- that 
"anything is possible:" -- lives in us all.

We need your support to help make this happen. We know that the 
financial picture is shaky, but particularly in an economic downturn, we 
have found that the more each contributor can give within their means, 
the more our supporters feel that quality education for students is 
being supported and nourished for the future.

With a contribution, you can make it possible for Austin Shakespeare to 
visit more schools more often, reaching more students. And you can feel 
confident that you'll be bringing students the best our culture has to 
offer, the grandeur of Shakespeare.

Sincerely,
Boyce Cabaniss
