Shakespeare’s Birthday Party

Saturday, April 20th, 3-5pm

The Academy of Children’s Theatre (ACT)

213 Wellsian Way, Richland, WA



You read that right – our first exciting announcement for next season is that we will be in residence at ACT! Their partnership means so much to us, and we’re already looking forward to performing A Christmas Carol this December in our new home.



Join us for:

  • Party favors

  • Snacks and non-alcoholic beverages (This is an all ages party, y’all!)

  • Trivia with PRIZES!

  • Special performances of “Shakespeare In the Park-Ing Lot”

  • First-to-know season play and director announcements

  • Cake!


Shakespeare’s Birthday Party will be a fundraising event, which will support The Rude Mechanicals’ educational programming. You’ll even have a chance to tell us what you would love to see on stage next spring! Not to worry – there will be no surprise, awkward, “gotcha,” high-pressure asks at this party. It is a fundraiser, but we want you to leave the party as our friend!


A pay-what-you-will ticket to our party lets you contribute at a level that’s right for you (with a $10 minimum per person to cover party expenses.) Click the button below to purchase tickets!

Can I buy a ticket at the door?
Yes! If we are nearing safety and regulation capacity, we will update this page to give folks a heads up.


I can’t attend but I’d still like to Donate. Can I do that?
Uh, absolutely! We’ll miss you, but we appreciate your support. Click here to donate to our season!


Can I bring my kids?
You bet! All ages welcome; we’d appreciate a ticket for everyone six and over.
