Gather ‘Round the Table

One thing you might learn after attending a Sweet Tea Shakespeare performance or two is that Shakespeare is not where our passion ends. As often as possible, we love to make food and drink offerings available for purchase and to enjoy during our shows. We love to highlight local businesses, and occasionally perform at local restaurants, bars, and breweries.

But beyond edible fare at our plays, the company loves to gather around a table. Traditionally, (though not in our current environment) the first rehearsal of a play starts with a meeting, a read-through, and a good old fashioned potluck. There is nothing like bonding around a table!

Though things may be a little different right now, we hope you will still join us in gathering ’round the table- right from the comfort of your own home. Sweet Tea Shakespeare brings you our Hours podcast series, including After Hours, Cocktail Hours, and Lunch Hours.  In this podcast, we explore Shakespeare’s plays, staging practices, and just all the little things that go on in making a play. Join us for exclusive content and interviews with actors, directors, designers, crew, and all the wonderful people who make Sweet Tea Shakespeare happen! This content is exclusively available for download for our Patreon members, for just $5 a month! Pull up a chair, grab a drink and maybe a sandwich, and enjoy good old conversations between our company members and friends.

This project is supported by the Arts Council in part by contributions from businesses and individuals, and through grants from the City of Fayetteville, Cumberland County and the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural & Cultural Resources.
