Event Details

To the delight of bingo and Shakespeare enthusiasts, Bingo for the Bard will return on March 21 for a second round in 2021. On a Sunday in January, over 85 people from surrounding towns, NYC and from as far away as Boulder, played Bingo for the Bard on Zoom to benefit the production of Twelfth Night 2021.

This wasn’t just old fashioned bingo with squares full of numbers, the cards for each of the six games were dedicated to a different Shakespeare-related theme: Words Shakespeare Invented; Shakespearean Actors; Cliches, Phrases and Insults; Life and Times of Shakespeare; Love and Murder in the Plays; All About Shakespeare in the Litchfield Hills.

Players were enthusiastic:“It was so enjoyable, and you taught us so much about Shakespeare.”“I never knew the Bard created so many of the words and phrases we use every day!”

“Who knew that John Goodman, Amy Adams and Clare Danes performed in Shakespeare’s plays!?”

On March 21, you can play Bingo for the Bard and possibly win a $25 gift card or the $100 grand prize! All of the proceeds from this fundraiser will go toward bringing five live, outdoor performances of Twelfth Night to Washington, August 4-8. These performances will be free to the Litchfield Hills community and will feature Equity and professional actors as well as local performers.You can play Bingo for the Bard by going to www.shakesperience.org and follow the links to “SHOP” or go directly to http://tiny.cc/bingoforthebard.

Each set of six bingo cards cost $25 (one card per game). Additional sets must be purchased for each player in your household. Deadline for ordering cards is March 15. You’ll need to print out your own cards before March 21. If you cannot play on that date, you can still help bring Twelfth Night to the Litchfield Hills by making a donation at www.shakesperience.org.
