Coconino Center for the Arts
A note from our executive director
Because of your incredible generosity and the hard work and flexibility of our staff and artistic teams, FlagShakes is looking forward to our seventh season with hope and excitement. Monthly donations allow us to proceed confidently, even in uncertainty. One-time contributions permit us to plan new projects and produce creative content outside our comfort zone. Every ticket purchased makes our actors, directors, and designers feel essential and appreciated.
In 2021 we will continue a lot of the new work we took on in 2020. We’ve already released one video project, “I, too, sing America” and will have a collaborative video series coming out featuring over 15 Flagstaff artists and institutions later this year. We will also remount our sold-out drive-in and Window Shakspeare. However, we are very much looking forward to returning to our favorite kind of productions in 2021 as well—outdoor Shakespeare.
This season, we will be back on stage to bring you laughter, tears, and music. Our actors cannot wait to see you in person and share their stories with you. We plan to be outdoors and continue safety measures including masks, distancing, and keeping everything well sanitized. We managed to rehearse and film a show in December 2020 while keeping everyone safe and healthy using carefully planned and executed Covid procedures. We know that in 2021 we can safely bring to our community one of the most essential things: Art. And through our art—empathy, joy, and a little escapism.
If you want to see more of this dynamic content from FlagShakes in 2021, please consider a monthly donation —no matter how small. I cannot possibly express how important monthly donations are to FlagShakes; they make it possible for us to plan and dream. Also, consider purchasing a Season Ticket. Your season ticket will help us put up the highest caliber productions we can and is flexible enough to allow you to choose what to see, when, and how to watch (in person or from home) depending on your comfort level.
We can’t wait to share all that we have in store with you in 2021!
With the utmost gratitude,
