SMASH: Southern Maine Association of Shakespearean Homeschoolers

October 1, 2022

SMASH is looking to recruit some new families to put on a Shakespearean play in your area!! Pastor Samuel Richards would like to start a new group in an area where there is enough interest. This is an unparalleled opportunity! SMASH is a small theater group comprised of homeschool families from all over Maine. The students learn all aspects of putting on a play on the stage. Their director, Sam Richards, has been putting on plays with children and teens for over 25 years. The mission of SMASH has been to show God's love and grace through the performance of plays by William Shakespeare. Pastor Sam has often said that he would stop doing SMASH if the purpose of sharing the Gospel through SMASH proved ineffective. Involvement in SMASH has helped young people discover interests, talents, and skills they never knew they had! It has helped many students grow intellectually, socially, and spiritually, all while learning about Shakespeare from a Christian perspective. If this sounds like something your family would be interested in, please contact Sam Richards at samuel.h.richards@gmail.com. Or pass along this information to friends who might be! Also, check out the website at smashmaine.jimbo.com
