Spring Gala Shakespeare on the Sound

Shakespeare on the Sound



Richard Alexander, Kelly Ambrose, Kim Alexander and Doug Ambrose

Supporters of an authentic Connecticut cultural asset took center stage at the annual spring gala for Shakespeare on the Sound. The evening was cochaired by Leslie and Robert Lawrence of Rowayton. The couple and their team of volunteers orchestrated a night in the forest of Arden, a theme drawn from the setting in Shakespeare’s pastoral comedy As You Like It. Music for the evening was provided by The Short Bus, a five-piece, Greenwich-based group that was named the Best of the Gold Coast Cover Band for six consecutive years. The gala featured live and silent auctions. Items up for bid included a tour of the Cake Boss studio and vacation homes in Montana and Vermont. The gala drew 260 guests who helped to raise more than $100,000, which is 20 percent of the organization's annual budget. Proceeds will support Shakespeare on the Sound's community outreach programs and annual production in Rowayton’s Pinkney Park. This summer, for the group’s eighteenth season, the theater presents As You Like It, which runs from June 13 to June 30. Admission to the performance is free.
