Richmond Shakespeare Festival
To go or not to go? That is the question. Although we highly suggest deciding to attend this summer event!
The historic Starr-Gennett Building in the Whitewater Gorge Park will be transformed into a theatre filled with the sights and sounds of famous works Cymbeline and The Merry Wives of Windsor by William Shakespeare. What makes this location unique is that the building shelters the crowd from weather while still being open aired and offering the feeling of being outdoors similar to what was experienced in Shakespeare’s time period.
Started in 2013, The Richmond Shakespeare Festival offers a unique, fresh spin on traditional Shakespeare while maintaining the authentic feel. According to their website, “The mission of the Richmond Shakespeare Festival organization is to produce and promote an annual Shakespeare festival of the highest quality, including theatrical performances and educational opportunities”.
You won’t want to miss this remarkable festival filled with authentic talent. It will truly be a unique experience this summer and provides a great opportunity to submerge yourself in amazing theater and historic works!
