Riverside Theatre is proud to announce The 2009 Riverside Theatre Shakespeare Festival.  This summer’s 10th annual festival will feature Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Richard III.  Both shows will run in rotation from June 12 through July 12.  Tickets will be on sale in April.

 

A Midsummer Night’s Dream, directed by Ron Clark, is one of Shakespeare's most magical comedies.  Join us for a magical romp through an enchanted forest as a quartet of mismatched lovers and a gang of hapless actors cross paths with the king and queen of the fairies.

 Watch Richard III wage his own private war as he murders, manipulates, and marries his way to the throne.  Kristin Horton directs this story of a self-proclaimed villain battling to obtain and retain the crown in one of Shakespeare’s most diabolical history plays. 

A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Richard III will be performed at the Festival Stage in Lower City Park. The space, which seats over 400 people, is based on Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre of 1600.  Based on a concept by theatre designer Paul Sannerud, the space was designed by Neumann-Monson Architects. 

 

Riverside Theatre is committed to providing engaging, intimate and thought-provoking professional theatre for its audiences.  For more information, please visit www.riversidetheatre.org
