These organizations are establishing their exciting partnership by presenting From the Bard to Broadway at Constantino’s at 1385 Lackawanna Trail, Clarks Summit, PA 18411, on Sunday, April 24, 2022 from 5:00 to 8:00 pm.

Guests can expect an evening to remember with great company, delicious food, and unforgettable performances celebrating Shakespeare’s impact on Broadway. Attendees will be taken on a journey into the Golden Age of Broadway through the eyes of Shakespeare, with a program including performances from fan favorites like West Side StoryKiss Me Kate, and Something Rotten, and will feature notable Scranton Shakespeare Festival performers including Kelly Jean Graham, Stephen Murphy, John Roman Vachino, Victoria Ferrentino, among others! The event will not only feature a cocktail hour, dinner, desserts, and performances, but also a chance to win raffle baskets from featured community businesses!

Michael Bradshaw Flynn, the Scranton Shakespeare Festival’s Artistic Director says, “Scranton Shakes wouldn’t have made it to an eleventh season of free, professional theatre if it weren’t for the formidable partnerships in its first ten seasons. We were excited when approached by ACL to collaborate with an organization that not only shares our mission for accessibility but also helps broaden our reach to our neighbors in NEPA. It is our hope that this collaboration is the beginning of a partnership that can include lectures and deeper dives into Shakespearean texts and other programming offered,” about the foundations of the organization’s partnership and their shared goals to engage their communities in new ways as a team.
