Spur of the Moment Shakespeare Collective says
There has been an awakening...have you felt it? The Shakesbeers will flow into us all...but who will win the Showdown of the light side versus the Bard side?

Spur-of-the-Moment Shakespeare Collective is proud to present the fifth annual Shakesbeers Showdown: The Bard Awakens April 24th, 2016 at The Rivoli! At this epic battle between Toronto’s hottest indie Shakespeare companies, contestants will face the ultimate test: a cold read of scenes from Shakespeare’s notoriously-hard-to-read First Folio...drinking every time they flub a line! Get ready for hilarious errors, outrageous rivalries, and insults that would make The Bard himself blush!

Featuring artists from:

Shakespeare BASH'd
Shakespeare in the Ruff
Spur of the Moment Shakespeare Collective
Shakey-Shake and Friends Theatre Company
Dauntless City Theatre
Ale House Theatre Company
Shakespeare at Play
Humber River Shakespeare Co.
Wolf Manor Theatre Collective

A raucous good time for audience and performers alike, The Shakesbeers Showdown is a celebration of Shakespeare, indie theatre, and the incredible audiences who make it worthwhile, all to support the Shakespeare-In-Hospitals Program. The groundbreaking project is set to embark on its 2016 tour, which will bring Shakespeare to the common rooms and bedsides of hospitals and shelters throughout Toronto.

So grab a pint and raise your voice to support your favourite performer...because trust us, they're gonna need it!
