If you go see Baltimore Shakespeare Factory‘s production of Richard III this week, keep an eye out for the handsome pit bull/terrier mix in a supporting role as Richard’s pet. That’s Jazz, and he’s looking for a home.
Thanks to BSF’s on-going partnership with the Baltimore Humane Society, a bunch of homeless cats and dogs will get a chance for a moment in the spotlight–as well as a lot more exposure to potential adopters. The BSF’s 2014 season will also include productions of Much Ado About Nothing (Claudio: “What, courage, man! What though care killed a cat? Thou hast mettle enough in thee to kill care”), Measure for Measure, and Comedy of Errors (Abbess: “The venom clamours of a jealous woman poison more deadly than a mad dog’s tooth”).
If Jazz, or any of the other theatrical animals, catches your fancy, the humane society has agreed to give 50% off adoption fees.
