Vision Thru ArtVISION THRU ART provides free sculpture classes to 40 blind and visually-impaired artists on a weekly basis throughout the year (and has been doing so since 1988).   We just launched a new kickstarter fundraising campaign to help support this amazing program.  With the recent loss of a major funder, the program is in danger of shutting down, so we are asking for your help (even a small amount makes a big difference).

SEE IT FOR YOURSELF! Take a few minutes to view the kickstarter video we created about what these talented artists do and how you can support the program.   Or feel free to call us at 215-248-0546 to talk about how you can make a financial contribution to help make sure that this valuable program can continue well into the future.

I Hate HamletI Hate Hamlet

Purchase your tickets for this play

Andrew seems to have it all: a starring role in a hit television series; a rich, beautiful girlfriend; a devoted agent; the perfect New York apartment that once belonged to the legendary actor John Barrymore; and the chance to play Hamlet in Central Park. But alas, there is always trouble in paradise as his show is on hiatus, his girlfriend is fickle and he really, really HATES Hamlet. Can the ghost of John Barrymore convince him to accept the part and fulfill his actor's destiny? The laughs are nonstop as Andrew wrestles with his conscience, his sword, his girlfriends expectations, Barrymore's ghost and the fact that he could fail at his turn as Hamlet.
