BARD-O-THON

2021 Young Company Bard-O-Thon Showcase

First Stage Theater Academy held the 11th annual Bard-O-Thon on Saturday, April 24, 2021. The Bard-O-Thon is held in celebration of Shakespeare’s birthday, challenging Young Company members to stretch their artistic endurance as they perform as many memorized Shakespearean monologues as possible.

This year, 55 students performed a total of 556 monologues and through their incredible fundraising efforts, the Young Company members raised more than $17,000 to further our mission of transforming lives through theater and help support Shakespeare programming at First Stage.
