Funding Shortage Could Threaten The Nashville Shakespeare Festival
WSMV reports on how a reduction in funding due to the economy could potentially impact this free summer festival. The report features an interview with Executive Director of the Nashville Shakespeare Festival, Nancy VanReece.

There are some inaccuracies in the story:
To clarify. Our annual budget in recent years, including in-kind donations, is nearly twice the fee mentioned. Our education work is year round and includes our Winter Shakespeare production in The Troutt. To be more accurate, the budget for Shakespeare in the Park in recent years has been 250,000 including in-kind donations. Also, we produce for 4-5 weekends but it is usually only one play. This year’s schedule is on our website, where you may also make a donation:
