2016/17 Hungry Hearts Tour, Helping Dogs

Helping Dogs Find a "Forever" Home


The 2016/17 Hungry Hearts Tour is traveling with a special, additional purpose: helping shelter dogs find their "Forever Home". 

Presenters who book THE TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA will be asked to secure a local shelter dog to play the role of Crab. After the show, audience members will be encouraged to apply to adopt the dog or one of his/her friends from the shelter. 

We realize that this is extra effort on the presenter's part, but we believe that it can
be tremendously beneficial in terms of PR and community goodwill.  In the words of our artistic director, "we hope to make a publicity splash for venues and for ticket sales... so that it’s multiple wins for a dog, a family, the presenter, and our show."

Contact our Tour Operations Manager, Darlene Schneck, Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. at 540.885.5588 ext. 11 or email darlene@americanshakespearecenter.com to discuss how you can help.
