‘Romeo and Juliet’ to raise money for pet shelter

Statement as issued Wednesday by Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control:

Fort Wayne, Indiana – Local not-for-profit performing arts group, Shakespeare From The Heart. (SFTH), will be performing their production of Romeo and Juliet on the campus of Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control, with good will proceeds (benefiting) homeless animals at the shelter.

Performance dates for the show will be June 29 and June 30, with show times at 1:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. both days. For the courtesy of the performers, pets should not be brought to the show. Animal Care & Control will feature a few adoptable pets during non-performance times.

SFTH was founded in 1999 by a local group of the Bard’s enthusiasts looking to better the community through the works of William Shakespeare. The goal is to create a fun environment where aspiring actors and artists come together and make Shakespeare’s plays more accessible to the masses, by performing in family-friendly environments to raise money for charity.
