Optimist Theatre’s “All the World’s a Stage Sonnet Slam” to Support Free Shakespeare in the Park

All the world’s a stage,

and all the men and women, merely players-

they have their exits and their entrances,

and one man in his time plays many parts,

his acts being seven ages.

As You Like It Act 2 scene 7, 139-143

Please join us and play your part upon the stage at Optimist Theatre’s “All the World’s a Stage Sonnet Slam”.  What’s a Sonnet Slam?  It’s a fun, optimistic party jam-packed with sonnets and laughter in a delicious setting.  Appetizers and pizza provided by Transfer Pizzeria, sonnets presented by As You Like It actors Todd Denning and Kristin Hammargren plus special guests including: “Fast” Fres Oquendo* the currently ranked #5 Heavyweight and former WBC, WBO & WBA Latino Heavyweight, and NABF, NABA & USBA Heavyweight boxing champion.

Got a Sonnet?  Give it!  There will be 3 sonnet sessions throughout the evening.  Sonnets do not have to be memorized and they don’t have to be by Shakespeare.  Proceeds support 2013’s free Shakespeare in the Park.

When: Monday, May 13, 2013 – from 8:00pm to 11:00pm
