William Shatner Beat Night

William Shatner Beat Night

My husband John and I performed last night in the 6th William Shatner Beat Night. This is an event held every year in Portsmouth NH on (or as close as feasible) to his birthday March 22 and is a fundraiser for the local food pantry. Most often it’s solo performers, but I convinced my husband to do the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet with me. We had a blast doing it and managed to score enough points to take the top prize – a William Shatner (Kirk) trophy and, more importantly, bragging rights! You can find out a little more about the event and how it works in this pre-event article.

The inimitable Roger Goun took some excellent photos. I normally dislike photos of myself, but these came out great.

The Sound (local arts paper) also did a little write up including some of Roger’s photos.

Full video will be coming soon, but here is a video from the side taken by Crystal Paradis on her cell phone.
