BlueShore Financial becomes production sponsor for Bard on the Beach

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA (February 4, 2014 )– BlueShore Financial and Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival are pleased to announce that BlueShore Financial will be a production sponsor for the 2014 season. The partnership comes at an auspicious time for both organizations; for BlueShore Financial as they continue to increase awareness around their new name, and for Bard on the Beach, as they celebrate their 25th season this summer.

“Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival is an iconic West Coast event,” said BlueShore Financial President and CEO, Chris Catliff. “Our partnership is a natural fit. It combines BlueShore Financial’s commitment to community and cultural wellness with Bard on the Beach’s vision to create an enduring contribution to the cultural fabric of the community.”

“To salute our 25 years we have a season that encompasses Bard’s evolution throughout the years,” said Artistic Director Christopher Gaze. “We are very pleased to forge this new partnership with BlueShore Financial as sponsor of Equivocation; a relatively new play set in Shakespeare’s world. I’m confident 2014 will be a landmark season.”
