Sonnets, Shakespeare Style

We are bringing in the new year with prizes - for our most lyrical patrons.

Remember those free season tickets and the Kill Shakespeare swag we gave away last year? Secretly jealous of the handsome gentleman who won them? Well, here’s chance number two! Once again, we’re giving away:

Two (2) free tickets to our 15th Anniversary Season featuring Twelfth Night and Titus Andronicus
A t-shirt from the Colin McCreery and Anthony Del Col graphic novel Kill Shakespeare
To win, write a Shakespearean sonnet for your sweetheart with these guidelines:

Step 1) Write a Shakespearean Sonnet. (Not sure how? No problem. Read the guidelines here or check out this video on YouTube.)

Step 2) Address it to your sweetheart, and make sure it includes the words Shipwreck, Twins and Music.

Step 3) Submit it to our Facebook by Valentine’s Day. While you’re at it, send it to your sweetheart. They’ll be impressed.

This contest ends February 14th at 11:59 pm. The Philadelphia Shakespeare staff will read over the submissions, pick their favorite, and contact you for your FREE tickets and t-shirt. The winner will be announced Friday, February 17, 2012.  Make sure to wear your new shirt to the shows!
