The Southeastern Teen Shakespeare Company (SETSCO) is celebrating Shakespeare’s 450th birthday with a fundraiser for their upcoming production of The Taming of the Shrew. Tickets for the fundraiser will go on sale April 7, 2014. The company will hold a party for Shakespeare on his birthday at New York Nick’s. Everyone is invited to enjoy cake and a performance by Company members. SETSCO is also selling a limited number of tickets for a night out at one of nearly two-dozen participating restaurants. Everyone who buys a ticket will receive a gift.
“It’s a night out to dinner all over town for Shakespeare,” said SETSCO Director Michelle Hancock. “We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our favorite local restaurants. Having the support of so many different businesses and individuals lets us know that our community supports teens, arts, education, and Shakespeare in a big way.”
Participating restaurants include:
The Grand Marlin

Taste of India
