Join Valley Shakespeare in TWO locations, celebrating their 10th consecutive production of FREE Shakespeare in the Park!

The Winter’s Tale tells the story of a lost princess raised by a shepherd and of her secret romance with a prince. As we follow Perdita's adventure, we encounter wild beasts, a magic statue, a sheep shearing party and an unexpected family reunion!

VALLEY SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL SOCIAL DISTANCING POLICY

In order to present our 10th year of Free Theater in the Park, it is important that everyone do their part in helping us practice Social Distancing and mitigate the transmission of the COVID-19 virus. Valley Shakespeare Festival has come up with these policies that align with the State of CT and CDC guidelines for outdoor gatherings, to help keep audience members safe and enjoy their experience in the Park.

We ask that you please respect people's comfort levels when it comes to mask-wearing and physical social distancing. While we do not like having to say this: any violation of these rules or guidelines will result in removal from the Park and Program. 

If you are not feeling well, please refrain from coming to the Park, there will be many more years of performances to come if we all do our part.
