***FIRST CLUE WILL POST ON APRIL 21, 9am!****
No presents can be found before then!
Happy Birthday, Will! We challenge you to find the (FREE) birthday presents we've scatterred about Akron businesses! If you are clever enough to find them, they are yours to keep! Presented with Ohio Shakespeare Festival and Aayla's Bookshelf.
In celebration of Shakespeare’s birthday weekend, Ohio Shakespeare Festival and Aayla's Bookshelf have hidden 10 birthday presents around the city of Akron. The rules are simple: follow the clues to find the present, and you get to keep it!
Each present is different, so you can try to find more than one. All presents ALSO contain one free ticket to an Ohio Shakespeare Festival show!
We will release the first clue On April 21 at 9am, another at noon, and the next at 5pm (and we'll follow the same schedule --for the most part--for the 22nd and 23rd). Mark yourself as “interested” in this event to get notified first when a clue is released, or simply catch them on our Facebook, twitter, and Instagram pages.
Happy scavenging! #ohioshakes #aalyasbookshelf
We will release clues indicating where the present is hidden. Often, the clues relate directly to the business's name.
Once you find one of Shakespeare’s birthday presents, it’s yours to keep!
When you find your present, ***post a picture of your prize on Facebook, tagging the business where you found it using the hashtag #BardAboutTown.***
The presents are all located indoors.
The presents are all hidden in beloved Akron businesses/venues.
If you think you’ve found the right business, you may politely search the common areas, but you can also ask an employee to point you in the right direction.
There are a total of 10 presents hidden throughout the city—they are all different, and they all relate directly to the titles in our 2017-18 season!
Remember: we love Akron people because they are so respectful of their city—treat every business like you were in a friend’s home, because you are!
