We have a lot of people to thank for our latest production, Measure for Measure. Before we do, we’d like to share with you a bit about what an amazing experience this has been.
Measure was Bare Theatre’s highest-grossing show that wasn’t staged in an amphitheater. It was both our first time performing this show, our first time performing in Chapel Hill AND our first time performing in a movie theater (which was loads of fun!). This show received great reviews, and really proved there is an interest locally for Shakespeare’s lesser-known works.
This success would not have been possible without the support of our Kickstarter backers, who are always the first ones to put money down on these projects. The generosity they showed this play helped raise over $2,000.
A big part of Measure’s success was due to the Wherefore: Shakespeare in Raleigh series. We want to thank the Greater Raleigh Convention & Visitors Bureau (the folks behind visitRaleigh.com) and our media sponsor, North Carolina Public Radio WUNC. Of course thanks also to our partners in Wherefore who are doing tremendous work curating a really powerful collection of plays.
Measure would not have been possible without the assistance of Triangle ArtWorks, who helped us find the perfect venue at the Varsity Theatre. And thanks to the whole Varsity crew for making our stay wonderful!
We could not have done this without the Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership, who sponsored the show and helped so much with publicity. A special shout-out goes to Meg McGurk, who made a guest appearance in the show as Varrius one of the nights!
It truly takes a village to make theatre. The good people of Raleigh Little Theatre, Visual Art Exchange, and Crude Bitters & Sodas helped us tremendously. Bombshell Studios lended some serious talent to our film-within-the-play, and the folks at C Grace provided THE BEST location for filming! Joyce Davis and Kelly Watson and their families are just all-around great people who offer to help whenever they can, too.
Big shouts out to our photographers – Douglas Lally, Hitesh Nauhria, and Ron Yorgason, who took some gorgeous pictures! Thanks also to our box office volunteers Noelle Azarelo, Chuck Keith, and Kelly and Riley Watson.
And huge – but silent – thanks to our house mime, Michelle R. Wood!
