The curtain has closed on our very successful 2021 Summer Festival.
We are filled with gratitude for the support our community has shown as we returned to live outdoor performances while navigating the challenges of COVID-19.
As we turn our attention to our 2022 Summer Festival, we are excited to announce three new productions: A World-Premiere of The Formula by Kathryn Chetkovich - inspired by Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, directed by Ellen Maguire, and a co-production with Blissfield. Twelfth Night and The Tempest by William Shakespeare will round out the festival.
Performances will take place next summer at The Grove in DeLaveaga Park.
Tickets will be on sale in early 2022.
We hope you will join us! See you in The Grove!
Inspired by Shakespeare, we create and strengthen community by bringing audiences and theatre artists together to celebrate stories about our collective humanity.
