mShakespeare 2010 Winter Campaign Pre-Kickoff

Dear mShakespeare Patrons,

mShakespeare is starting its Winter Season in about 6 weeks! This season, we hope to finally present the long-awaited finale of Twelfth Night – unabridged – in our usual legendary extravagance – and with more!

OEP1 Twelfth Night Act 1 LAST SHOW OEP1 Twelfth Night Main - Triumvirate OEP2 Twelfth Night Malvolio A2S5

(Main playbills of previous acts shown above. Acts 3, 4 and 5, to come!)

Great theatre – especially on SL – is a costly thing: Aside from our elaborate wardrobe, props and sets, and everything else, we have to raise funds for tier for our home venue, the virtual Shakespearean thespian idealist’s dream of a 4-sim SL Globe Theatre. We’ve partnered with sLiterary, a nonprofit dedicated to the arts in virtual worlds, and Primtings Museum, a sim-sized art gallery of 3D paintings, to fund 2 of our 4 sims. Our artistic director has donated the fourth sim (mea culpa?). Minimally, we still have to raise tier for that peculiar sim called Shakespeare – you know, the one with the epic stage of the SL Globe Theatre, and also the world’s only full reconstruction of Shakespeare’s indoor theatre, the Blackfriars Theatre – as well as virtual reconstructions of other buildings relating to Shakespeare’s legacy. We pay our tier in 6-month intervals… And, it’s high time to get working on the fundraising!

As a pre-kickoff to our 2010 Winter Campaign, we have a pretty thing to offer as a fashionable head dress of sorts for your avatar. Ina Infinity of iC Hair has created a 100% Donation hair inspired by a certain Shakespearean character. Catch it at [iC] Hair’s Hair Fair booth before Hair Fair ends this coming Friday.

P.S. Be the first three to name the Shakespearean character impersonation the hair embodies, and iC Hair will name one of its future styles after you (or a word or phrase of your choice).
