Final Weekend for Richmond Shakespeare Festival 2018

By KPass | Arts

Jun 28

It’s not too late to catch the final performances during the Richmond Shakespeare Festival 2018!  With your choice of favorites like Macbeth and The Winter’s Tale, how could you go wrong?

According to the Richmond Shakepeare Festival website

the productions will be created by a brilliant cast and crew of AEA and non-AEA professionals, college-age interns, and volunteers sourced from as nearby as Richmond, and Indianapolis, and as far away as Utah, Maine and New York.

Leading this company is Producing Artistic Director, Patrick Flick, also Executive Director of the international Shakespeare Theatre Association. On visiting Richmond, he says “Anytime is a good time to come to Richmond, but the summer is really the best. Come see some of the only Shakespeare being produced right here in beautiful Wayne County. We’re an hour and change from Cincinnati and Indianapolis, and even closer to Dayton and other surrounding communities.”

The Festival performs in the Starr-Gennett Pavilion in the beautiful Whitewater Gorge Park at 201 S. First Street in Richmond Indiana (Directions). Discounts are available for groups of 10 or more —  contact the Shakespeare Festival office  765-373-9022 for more information & tickets.

Get out this weekend and get your Shakespeare fix!  Fun for the whole family.  Ullery’s ice cream will be available with their deliciously homemade concoctions and beer by the Cordial Cork is also on site for your imbibing pleasure.

Schedule:

Friday June 29 – 7:30 p.m.

Saturday, June 30 2:00 pm & 7:30 pm
