We have been able to thrive as a theater company for 15 years due to the support of our community. Times being what they are, we’d like to give back.

Please join us as we present our first Virtual Shakespeare Challenge. It’s free! It’s online! No strings attached!

And first prize is $200 worth of gift cards to local businesses.
Who will win? Could it be your team?

At 8PM each day of the game, we’ll post 5 questions on our Facebook page and on our website. (You’re already here!)

We will not give hints or additional information on questions, so don’t even try. 🙂
DO NOT POST ANSWERS ON FACEBOOK – You’re only helping your competition!

Each day, send an email with your answers to pooryoricksplayers@gmail.com
Subject: (Your Team Name) – Answers, Day 1 (or whatever day you’re answering)

Your first day of answers, include the address of your team captain and a list of team members.

YOUR TEAM CAN ANSWER EACH SET OF QUESTIONS ONLY ONCE
Answers can be in the form of text, pictures or links.

Questions will be worth 1 to 5 points each, based on difficulty.
First team that answers all 5 correctly gets 3 points for that day;
2 points for 2nd place; 1 point for 3rd place.
Final day is worth double points.
Teams are welcome and recommended, but you may work as an individual.

Each day will include one Bonus Challenge, requesting you to send us something a little more creative and fun. Bonus Challenges do not award points for the game, but will be scored for our Bonus Challenge Winner prize.
Bonus Challenge is subjective, so be creative!
