A run on Twinkies in Everett after Hostess calls it quits November 16, 2012
Starting today, Seattle Shakespeare Company will give away a Hostess Twinkie to the first 90 people who subscribe to the theater's 2012-2013 season.
With the recent closure of the Hostess Company, Seattle Shakespeare Company wanted to make this offer but was only able to make it to the first 90 patrons because it was unable to source any more of the snack cakes in the local area. A grocery clerk at the Safeway in the Lower Queen Anne neighborhood stated that the last delivery of Hostess products would be on Monday.
Although the Twinkie has not been around as long as Shakespeare's works, urban legend does claim that it may have an infinite shelf life -- much like Shakespeare.
Three play subscriptions to Seattle Shakespeare Company range from $54 to $105 and can be purchased in person at the box office, by phone at 206-733-8222 or online at Seattle Shakespeare Company
Seattle Shakespeare Company's current production of "Antony and Cleopatra" closes on Sunday, November 18.
