SHakespeare In the park

ON TOUR 2020

Each year, one of Valley Shakespeare Festival’s professionally acclaimed productions travels to schools, homeless shelters and community centers throughout the Lower Naugatuck Valley.  These shows are family-friendly and require limited setup, making them ready to perform in nearly any space.


Performances in the past have been noted for their fresh takes on classics (Macbeth, As You Like It, Pericles, and The Two Gentlemen of Verona) that are performed intimately and invite the audience to participate.  


Most performances are also followed with a Q&A with actors, so that the audience can get to know the actors (who come in from NYC, LA and locally) and more about the performance.
