#Shakesbeers Showdown: 8-Bitiversary
WHEN: Saturday May 2, 6:00pm (***Doors at 5PM)
WHERE: Grand Canyon Theatre (2 Osler St. Toronto)

COME AND CELEBRATE THE 8-BIT YEARS OF BEERS!

This May, join us as we celebrate our 8-Bit-anniversary (or 8th anniversary) and 9th rendition of #ShakesbeersShowdown, a gamer-themed night of epic proportions, a daring winner-takes-all/loser-drinks-most battle to see who will be crowned the ultimate Shakespeare cold-reading champion. Torontos hottest indie theatre companies face-off in this live massively multiplayer RPG, a battle of Shakespeares notoriously difficult First Folio (the Contra of Shakespeare).

This player vs player quest celebrates failing with flair through line flubs and mispronunciations, with each K/O round bringing the victor one step closer to the ultimate title. The winners advance to the next round, the losersget a lot of beer.

STAY TUNED HERE FOR MORE UPDATES!!!
