Vermont Shakespeare Company performs in August

Tickets are now on sale for Vermont Shakespeare Company’s seventh season of summer Shakespeare.
A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream, Shakespeare’s magical comedy of lovers, fairies and rude mechanicals takes audiences from Athens to a moonlit forest full of intrigue and enchantment. The play is a joyous ride that reveals the nature of true love and the power of imagination.
Founded in 2005 by husband and wife team Jena Necrason and John Nagle, Vermont Shakespeare Company’s vision is to build a nationally recognized destination theatre festival. The festival will include outdoor and indoor shows, a funded educational component, pre-show arts events and Shakespeare-focused community events for all ages. Many area residents remember the popular Champlain Shakespeare Festival at UVM. Necrason and Nagle have a strong vision to follow existing national models to build a new festival in Burlington
In addition to ‘Shakespeare In The Park’ at Knight Point State Park in North Hero, the company will be performing on the Circus Lawn at Shelburne Museum. The season will conclude with performances at the celebrated Royall Tyler Theatre at the University of Vermont. Vermont Shakespeare Company and The UVM Department of Theatre are initiating a partnership with the mission of bringing Shakespeare back to the Royall Tyler Theatre, while providing professional opportunities for students in the theatre department.

Shelburne Museum, Aug. 13 and 14 at 6 p.m.
The Royall Tyler Theatre at the University of Vermont, Aug.16 at 7:30 p.m. and August 17 at 2 p.m.
