Akin to free Shakespeare in the Park, No Holds Bard is free. Free. FREE! The catch...It's far from free to produce. Optimist Theatre employs actors, artists, crew, staff, puppets, and kick-butt web designers and social media managers. On average 20% of our shoestring operating funds come from individuals giving $5, $20, $100.

Like You, Please.

No Holds Bard: The Pericles Project enabled Optimist Theatre to pivot free Shakespeare in the Park to more free Shakespeare. With your help, we can continue to reach new audiences in surprising ways.

Thank you.
