2020 Bard-o-ThonThe 2020 Bard-O-Thon was a huge success! This year, we went virtual with a Facebook Live Stream allowing the “show to go on!” Fifty Young Company members came together and stretched their artistic endurance by memorizing and performing 504 Shakespearean Monologues, all while raising funds to help support Shakespeare programming at First Stage.

Thank you to 100+ people who contributed to the 2020 Bard-O-Thon helping our students raise more than $16,000!

In celebration of Shakespeare’s birthday, the First Stage Theater Academy presents its annual Bard-O-Thon, challenging Young Company members to stretch their artistic endurance as they perform as many memorized Shakespearean monologues in a row as possible. Join us to celebrate their accomplishments and enjoy a selection of monologues from some of the participating students.
