4th Annual Shakespeare Sonnet Slam on Kickstarter

Melinda Hall hopes to raise $1,600 for the 3rd Annual Shakespeare Sonnet Slam. This free event, celebrating William Shakespeare’s 450th birthday, is scheduled to take place in New York City on April 25, 2014.

The stage, the Naumburg Bandshell inside Central Park, will feature readings of all 154 Shakespearean sonnets. We’ve embedded a video about the project above. Here’s more from the Kickstarter page:

“This is our 4th year and so far, we’ve had Sonnet Readers from ages 8-96 perform their Sonnet and there have been Readers from over 30 Countries.  Some Readers are professional actors but many are not, they just share a common love of Shakespeare and are willing to get up on that stage to perform. The audience is comprised of people of all ages who stay for as little as 10 minutes or stay the entire three hours and hear all 154 Sonnets by 154 Readers.”

Above, we’ve embedded a video about the Kickstarter project–what do you think? Here’s more about the project:

We are back to produce Shakespeare’s Birthday Sonnet Slam 2013 where 154 Readers of all ages will recite all 154 Sonnets on stage at the Naumburg Bandshell in Central Park. The event is free to the public but there are producing costs involved to rent the equipment and videotape it for possible inclusion in the film project How Shakespeare Changed My Life.
