Support the Flatwater Shakespeare Company on Give to Lincoln Day!

Your gift to the Flatwater Shakespeare Company supports not only our mainstage shows – including Much Ado About Nothing FREE this summer – but also our Youth productions. Here's a testimonial from one of our past participants:

“The program provides an introduction to acting for Shakespeare’s plays. The director and a dramaturg worked with us on understanding the importance of differences between verse and prose, the structure of iambic pentameter, and the meaning behind the Bard’s words . . . I continued to participate in the youth productions each summer through my junior year of high school. I became more and more comfortable with the plays and the language. I gained a foundation to build on that also helped me to excel in Shakespearean English classes in high school.
Eventually, Shakespeare became not just something I was comfortable with but something I loved. I admire how Flatwater Youth aims to instill passion for Shakespeare in the youth theater community of Lincoln.” 
Flatwater Youth Shakespeare continues this fun and important work in collaboration with Nebraska Youth Theatre at The Haymarket Theatre. Your contribution helps more than you know!

On May 16, the community again comes together for 24 hours of giving from 12:00am to 11:59pm. Gifts can be made online and will also be accepted in person during regular business hours at the Lincoln Community Foundation, 215 Centennial Mall South.

All donations on Give to Lincoln Day will be matched with a proportional share of a $200,000 challenge match pool of funds. The challenge fund is provided by the Lincoln Community Foundation and its partnering sponsors. In addition, the top three organizations that have the greatest number of donors making gifts on May 16 will receive bonus grants of $2,500, $1,500 and $1,000 respectively.
