Norton to Appear in Shakespeare Theater’s Annual ‘Will on the Hill’ Performance, Tonight
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC), an annual performer in the long-running comedic event “Will on the Hill,” hosted by the Shakespeare Theatre Company (STC), will appear in the performance tonight, Monday, June 11, 2018, at 7:30 p.m. at Sidney Harman Hall (610 F Street NW). All proceeds from the event go toward STC’s artistic, education and community outreach programs.
“‘Will on the Hill’ is an all-time favorite event for me and other Members of Congress who enjoy making fun of ourselves and others in the political sphere using Shakespeare’s always applicable lines,” Norton said. “I particularly appreciate that funds raised from this event assist D.C. organizations that work with our children. ‘Will on the Hill’ is an annual reminder of the importance of the arts and the critical role they play here in the nation’s capital. I cannot wait to don my Shakespearean garb and again take on the role of Beatrice.”
