This event has passed.

#ShakesbeersShowdown is where Toronto’s hottest indie Shakespeare companies face-off in a battle of winner-takes-all, loser-drinks-most, as contestants cold read scenes from Shakespeare’s notoriously-hard-to-read First Folio.

The rules are simple: if you screw up, you drink!

The winner is crowned the revered Shakesbeers Showdown Heavyweight Champion (complete with championship belt), and the losers…get a lot of beer. 

All funds raised go towards the 2018 Shakespeare-In-Hospitals Program, set to launch this fall.

************************************

For the first time ever, the SOTMSC is opening up the #ShakesbeersShowdown to all companies and members of the public. Companies do not have to be Shakespeare-based, and you don’t even have to have a company: there is a slot available for those without theatre companies to apply as a part of “the people”. Whether you are a Stratford regular or fresh outta school, the title of #ShakesbeersShowdown Heavyweight Champion is yours for the drinking.
