The Barbara B. Apperson Angel Fund
Bringing as Many Children to Shakespeare as Possible

The Barbara B. Apperson Angel Fund (established in 2008 by her loving children Chip, John, and Virginia pictured above) serves as our annual Education Fund to ensure as many Mid-South children as possible can participate in our expanding Education Program.  Specifically, the Angel Fund:

  • Underwrites Free Will Thursday Kids Nights during our productions; allowing Children aged 17 and younger to see one performance per week free of charge when accompanied by a guardian;
  • Supplements ticket prices and transportation for special morning matinees and post-show discussions of our productions for middle and high school students;
  • Supplements costs associated with in-school Shakespeare Playshops and Residencies throughout the Mid-South;
  • Made possible the launch of Shakespeare Play Camps in summer 2015: multiple indoor/outdoor camps of Renaissance imagination for students ages 4-18;
