The bard turns 449 next month, and we of Trebuchet Players say a party is imperative!

Oh yeah, AND — we need moneys for our November production of _Hamlet_, directed by Kathy Drum and starring Aaron Echegaray in the title role.

So join us on Saturday, 20 April, for a Steampunk Circus celebration!

THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR ADMISSION. There will, however, be plenty of opportunities inside if you care to donate to our thespianic cause.

The evening’s attractions include:
– food and drink,
– a silent auction,
– fortune-telling,
– an exhibition of stage combat,
– music,
– magic,
– bellydancing,
– and the main event, a Shakespearean Monologue Competition starring renowned local actors Brian Heaton, Raymond Deeb, Travis Koneschik, David Rainey, Tom Stell, Matt Zipko, John Mitsakis, John Zipay, Leighza Walker, Samantha Walker, Rebecca Bernstein, Holly Wilkison, Elyse Freeman, Anna Julia, Clarity Welch, Karen Schlag, and more!

**There is still time to sign up for the monologue contest. If you are interested in competing, please send an e-mail to tyrrell@trebuchetplayres.org.**
