Shakespeare in the Garden is a series of informal presentations that enhance the Summer Shakespeare Festival experience. These presentations are led by Arts Engagement Teaching Artists and take place in the Craig Noel Garden before each performance. The Teaching Artists use an interactive approach to engage participants in understanding the play and concepts of the production, inviting audience participation with Shakespeare’s text and offering insight and history of the play to attendees and passersby. This event is FREE and open to the public.
There are no upcoming Shakespeare in the Garden events.
