Neighborhood Newspaper rallies behind Rain-Soaked Shakespeare Dalla

The local Lakewood-Now.net online community newspaper published this article to help our friends at Shakespeare Dallas:

"The unusual weather over the last many weeks has adversely affected our friends at Shakespeare Dallas.

Ninety percent of their performances have been affected by rain or lightning, and park admissions are down almost 60% this year.

We urge Lakewood-Now readers to consider a donation to the organization's “rain fund,” to sustain them through this unfortunate turn of events—something of a tragedy, one might say.

Download the Rain Fund donation form here (PEF file) and send it with your check to Shakespeare Dallas. Tell them Lakewood-Now sent you.

"They'll appreciate it, and so will you when this long-time Dallas arts institution can finish the current season with its usual flair and return next year for even more comedy and tragedy right here in east Dallas."
