As most of you know, at the end of this month I’m beginning my One-Man Street Shakespeare on a Bike tour! Below is the list of cities I will be stopping through along my tour around the USA.
Check out the Sun Herald article for my `Speare Bearer show tomorrow at Port Charlotte High.
PCHS auditorium, 18200 Cochran Boulevard Port Charlotte, FL 33948
FREE! And open to the public.
So there’s LOTS of news that I’m hurrying to get out before I go sleep in a tent in my moms backyard, (preparation for my tour). I’m still here in South West in Florida for a another 2 weeks or so before I take off on the One Man Street Shakespeare bike tour. I’ve been here spending some time with my family… I’ve really not spent much time at home at all in the last 4 1/2 yrs I was living at home, so I’ve been doing some much needed catching up with friends and family… also doing a lot of prep work for the tour… actually purchasing a bike, a 2012 Surly Long Haul Trucker I’ve named Grace Monger, (a peddler of Grace), been doing some riding, been doing a good amount of rehearsing, really starting to stretch out and loosen up into my repertiore… it feels nice, but there’s a lot more work to do.. and I’ve booked two preview shows for myself, one in Savannah GA, where I went to college (at SCAD), Here’s a newspaper article about that (!!!!), and one here in Port Charlotte. Hopefully there’s another forthcoming article about that one.
It’s getting late, and that’s the major news so I’ll just end by encouraging everyone to please donate to my tour. I’m DEEPLY indebted and so grateful to everyone who donated to my Kickstarter, and if you didn’t get a chance to and want to contribute, or if you are just divinely generous and just want to donate more, just go to thespearebearer.tumblr.com/donate and there’s simple instructions there about how to give via amazon.com. That’s all for now. Love you all. Good night.
Alright, so I’ve finally worked it out. I have TWO Tumblr blogs. One, Romantic But Fugitive, is just for me to post whatever crazy, warped stuff I want, and then there is my theSpeareBearer.tumblr.com blog, which is exclusively about my project and my trip. I’ll be posting all my updates and news, ruminations and writing, pictures, videos and thoughts about my One-Man street Shakespeare bike tour Across the USA project there. on either blog, you will find a link to the other. one the `Speare Bearer blog, near the home link you’ll find a link to all the locations I’m heading toward and my expected date of arrival, so if you live in that city or town you can come out and see me perform, or alert your friends and/or family if they happen to live in that area. Near the home link I will also soon post information about how people can continue to donate to my project and support what I’m doing if they so desire.
I’m about 3 weeks away from taking off. I’m rehearsing several times a week… I’ve gotten my awesome helmet and I’m picking up my bike today. Things are going well, and I am incredibly excited. More to come soon. Please continue to check out my blogs to see what’s going on, and please hit me up and let me know what’s going on with you.
