Stars & Shakespeare: A Benefit Soiree For Theatricum Botanicum

The Mountain Mermaid will see a night of many stars turning out to help raise funds for Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum Shakespeare Theatre. It will be a drawing room sized adaptation-compilation of the best loved words and characters from Shakespeare’s plays. These stars will read and perform selected scenes and monologues. There will be costumed characters, madrigal singers, festive libations and Shakspearian nibbles and a silent auction featuring exclusive gifts, getaways and VIP experiences.

The celebrities scheduled to appear are: Peri Gilpin (Frazier), Peter Jason (upcoming Jurrasic World: Fallen Kingdom), preeminent Shakespearean stage actor Stacy Keach (Mike Hammer), Dan Lauria (The Wonder Years), John Savage (The Deer Hunter), Steven Weber (NCIS New Orleans) and more. The Hosts of the evening are Ed Asner and Wendie Malick. 

The proceeds of the night benefit the artistic and educational programming at Theatricum Botanicum.
