Art 4's new program ShowTunes Sunday raises relief funds for artists who've been financially impacted by COVID-19. On a weekly basis, Art 4 teams up with local artists to create music videos of musical theatre numbers, and hosts weekly fundraisers for artists in need. Shakespeare at Notre Dame is excited to join forces with Art 4, South Bend's professional musical theatre company, for a special installment of this program - ShowTunes Shakespeare! This first-time collaboration will feature local artists performing musical theatre tunes, all inspired by the Bard himself. Join us August 4 for this premier performance, and to help raise funds for artists who need our support. Together, we can ensure that the arts not only survive, but thrive during these challenging times.
