Happy 452nd Birthday William Shakespeare!


Join us for this FREE event commemorating the 400th anniversary of the passing of William Shakespeare. Gamut opens the bar and reception lobby stage to honor the legacy of the man responsible for bringing us all together! What does Shakespeare mean to you? Maybe his work has somehow made you a better person. Maybe his words have given you ways to describe things that would otherwise have been indescribable. Or maybe you still can’t forgive him writing "Timon of Athens". Well, now is your chance to get it off your chest! Gamut joins hundreds of Shakespeare companies from around the world in celebrating SHAKESPEARE'S LEGACY 400 (www.stahome.org). “Peggy’s Pub”, Gamut’s bar, will open at 7:30 PM and will remain open throughout the duration of the wake. This is a free event for the community. Guests are invited to enjoy a drink or two and step up to the mic to share their favorite memories or experiences of William Shakespeare. This can be a memorable production you saw, an inspiring English teacher’s lesson plan, that time you misquoted a sonnet to Judi Dench at an airport in Phoenix…anything. “A Wake for Will” will feature readings and musings by Tara Herweg-Mann, Ro Weber, Julia Hatmaker, Paul Hood, and Billy Wolfgang, features musical performances by Mike Banks and Steph Werner. The event concludes with a toast to The Bard by Artistic Director J. Clark Nicholson.  All of this concludes a day-long celebration of the legacy of William Shakespeare, and we are proud to announce that Mayor Eric Papenfuse will be officially declaring April 23 to be “Shakespeare Day” in Harrisburg! Thanks to our friend Good Tickle Brain for the wonderful event art! Check out her work at goodticklebrain.com!
