Description

Our annual Valentine’s program shifts to a virtual format in 2021. A diverse group of Del Shakes actors will read romantic Shakespeare scenes. Each scene will be paired with a drink idea from Swigg and a chocolate from a local chocolatier*. In this interactive program, there will also be time to reflect on the different aspects of love represented in the scenes – and in the sweets and drinks!

* Spirits and chocolates must be purchased separately

This event is Pay-What-You-Decide. Register for the Zoom meeting for free, and then you’ll be sent an email after the event asking you to pay what the program was worth to you!
