Homeless Animals Star in Baltimore Shakespeare Productions

Share the News


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.
