Our Second Annual Fundraiser!


Come join us for a stellar Saturday night of food, drinks, and revelry at our 2nd Annual January Fundraiser – 80’s Prom! Help us celebrate our new 3-play season, “Not Your High School English Class” at Mad Swede Brewing Comapny! Tubular entertainment, rad dancing accompanied by Mad Swede’s bodacious beer will make this a night you won’t want to miss.

Raffle prizes and a silent auction will help to chase away the gnarly late winter blues.

All ages are welcome, $20 per person on Brown Paper Tickets. Grab your AquaNet, powder blue tuxedos, and checkbooks and party like it’s the 1980’s!

We’re a Nonprofit!!!

It’s been years in the making, but we are finally, officially, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit!

We wanted to thank each and every one of you who have supported us in our past works. None of this would be possible without you!

If you haven’t already, we hope you’ll check out our Patreon page and consider becoming a Patron of The Boise Bard Players. It’s the small monthly donations from our community that help us keep up on the latest Shakespeare research, support our local artists, and continue to produce the best work possible for our community! The best part of donating is that your donations are now tax-deductible!

If you prefer to donate your time and experience, we are looking for someone interested in assisting us with pro bono nonprofit accounting services, as well as legal advice, as needed. Send us a line on our Contact page if you’re interested!

Stay tuned for how to attend our very first fundraiser!
