Community Engagement Fund

Why Give to Our Community Engagement Fund

Cincinnati Shakespeare Company allocates intentional focus and resources towards developing authentic, reciprocal relationships with community organizations. Out of these relationships we are developing experiences in which theatre supports community goals. Your gift enables us to be a contributor to all things of importance to Greater Cincinnati and to be recognized as a reliable and flexible collaborator on projects that deepen roots in our region and make it a better place to live.

Because of you CSC continues to serve members of the community beyond the scope of traditional theater. Our artists and administrators use both our facility and our expertise to go beyond performing arts and find ways to contribute to community efforts.

ShakesQueer:  A Pride Month inspired Shakesqueer Drag Show in partnership with local drag and burlesque troupe, Smoke & Queers. This bawdy, Bardy, ballyhoo celebrates all expressions of gender and sexuality with a Shakespearean twist.

Young Professionals Night: YP Preview Night brings young professionals to the first public preview performance night of each Mainstage Show and offers them a subsidized ticket rate that also includes a complimentary beverage. Afterwards, participants were invited to chat with members of the CSC artistic team and provide feedback.

Battle of the Bards: A Battle of the Bands inspired by Shakespeare and performed by local artists.

The Bard Review: CSC’s literary journal focused on poetry and monologues.

Playwright Spotlights: Playwrights behind CSC’s world premiere commissions give the community insight into their process.
