Richmond Shakespeare members act as evangelists for the bard in Central Virginia. My experience with these fine people convinces me that they are fully committed to preserving Shakespeare and converting high school students into acolytes! This is such an important service to our community and, in fact, to the preservation of our common culture. Imagine an English-speaking world in which Shakespeare does not exist. It would be tragic indeed. I hope many generous individuals will continue to support Richmond Shakespeare and its educational and entertaining services. Bravo!
