The Antaeus Theater Company needs to move to a larger place, and is fundraising with the help of Deep Space Nine‘s Armin Shimerman.
Shimerman is not the only Trek actor involved with the company; Star Trek: Enterprise‘s Linda Park is also a member of the company.
The Antaeus Theatre Company is “a cooperative theatre ensemble founded in 1991 to celebrate and reinvigorate the classics.” Over one hundred-and-eighty actors belong to the Antaeus Theatre Company, which “stages award-winning productions, houses a classics library of over six thousand books, offers Academy classes and provides arts education to under-served and incarcerated youth and young adults.”
Much of the money for the move to larger digs was raised but there is still a need so that is why a Kickstarter campaign has been started. There will be plenty of perks for donors, including (of interest to Trek fans): a Shakespeare insult tweeted at the person of your choice from Shimerman or Park, a signed Deep Space Nine production still from Shimerman, Andy Robinson, or Kitty Swink, a signed Enterprise still from Park; a video thank you from Shimerman, Park, Swink and Rhonda Aldrich; dinner with Shimerman, Park, Swink and Aldrich and more.
