38 Plays / 38 Days Challenge

Share your love for Shakespeare during our 38 Plays / 38 Days Challenge as we count down the days to the start of the OCS Theatre Camp! Our first session begins on June 22, and our second session begins on July 20. The OCS is also celebrating the close of our 2013/2014 Artistic Year and the completion of Shakespeare’s canon.

38Days

How to Play:

  • We’ll post a different Shakespearean play title to the OCS Facebook page and OCSTC blog every day starting on Thursday, May 15 (38 days out from the start of OCSTC Session 1).
  • Share a post about that play on any of your favorite hashtaggable social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine, or Google+). Your post can be a performance (audio or video) of your favorite line, a quote, a photo, a meme, or a song.
    • Tag #OCS38plays to your post, then share it on the OCS Facebook page or as a comment to that day’s play title post.
    • Anyone can play! Participants will be entered into a drawing to win two free tickets to an OCS show. Registered OCSTC campers have the chance to earn extra prizes.
    • Each day that you post counts as one entry into the grand prize drawing, so you have up to 38 chances to win.
  • We’ll announce the winners on June 22.
  • Remember, you have to tag your post with #OCS38plays!

Book Giveaway: The Bookman’s Tale, by Charlie Lovett

BookmansTale

As promised, thanks to the generosity of Viking Press, OCS Education is pleased to host a giveaway contest for The Bookman’s Tale by Charlie Lovett. In case you missed my review, I will reiterate that this was a wonderful, creative, and scholastically responsible historical mystery novel, and I highly recommend it for Shakespeare enthusiasts — particularly of the breed that I know frequents the Blackfriars Playhouse. So, this is your chance to get a copy for free, straight from the publisher — just in time for the summer holidays!

All you have to do to enter is tell us: What show in our 25th Anniversary year, opening June 21st, are you most looking forward to, and why?

We will randomly select a winner from the submissions and make our announcement on Friday afternoon. Please note that due to the publisher’s restrictions, the winner must have a U.S. mailing address.
