Welcome to The Sweet Tea Shakespeare Hours, where we spend time well by spending it together. Think of the Hours as a way to pass the time around a common table of ideas inspired by Shakespeare, theatre, and each other. But it’s also so much more than that. We’re a community seeking to delight in story, song, and stagecraft even as we confront a world of change and challenge.
Our episodes are feasts of careful study, adventuresome radio dramas, music, original writing, and explorations of texts, moments, and people.
Welcome! We’re glad to spend time with you.
Tune in for our Lunch Hours podcast segment that features Sweet Tea Shakespeare’s Assistant Artistic Director, Claire Martin. Listen as Claire meets with industry professionals and speaks on everything from industry news to world happenings. Find out how local theatre artists are finding ways to express themselves in a turbulent world and ways you can support the meaningful art they produce. Catch the livestreams weekly on our official Facebook page and via the audio podcast release on Anchor.fm Mondays at noon.
After Hours features Sweet Tea Shakespeare’s Artistic Director, Jeremy Fiebig, and Shakespeare expert and Hollywood screenwriter, Rob Gibbs. Tune in for a podcast special that explores the impact of politics and world news on the arts. The morning-show vibes and timely political discourse offers thought-provoking perspectives on current events. Join them for livestreams on Sundays at 11 am and the audio podcast release via Anchor.fm on Thursdays at 5 pm.
The Cocktail Hours is a rollicking, occasionally raucous romp hosted by Artistic Director Jeremy Fiebig, Assistant Artistic Director Claire Martin, Company Member Jessie Wise, and special guests. Libations and laughter are the order of the day, as the group ponders the sublime and the absurd in theater arts. This exclusive podcast is available only on the Sweet Tea Shakespeare Patreon, released on Wednesdays at 5pm. Join us for monthly giving of $5 or more to experience this fun and delightful STS Hours segment.
