EHS Drama to Benefit Food Bank


The Encinal High School (EHS) Drama Department is presenting Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream as a special fundraiser to help support the Alameda Food Bank. Midsummer will play over two weekends: Oct. 21, 22, 28 and 29 at 2 p.m. in the Encinal Amphitheater (a.k.a. the student parking lot). 

Admission is free, but donations are requested to help provide food for the hungry in Alameda. This continues a tradition of using theater to help fund local nonprofits going back many years. 

Last spring a donation was made to Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter and several years ago “Project Open Hand” was the recipient of a contribution from EHS Drama. Midsummer is Shakespeare’s most popular comedy and is suited for audiences of all ages.
