Shakespeare in the 'Burg will be celebrating its fifth year, April 6-8, 2018, in beautiful Middleburg, VA. The festival brings the plays of William Shakespeare alive in the bucolic countryside of Virginia. In addition, the festival hosts workshops in stagecraft and acting, and a One-Act Playwriting Competition, with public readings or performances of the winners! In 2017, we were pleased to present our new theater company, Shakespeare in the Square, coming to us from New York City. We also had a special performance by Nicolo Whimsey for our younger fans.
We are also very pleased to announce that Hill School alum Dan Hasse, who has family in Upperville, is the co-director of Shakespeare in the Square. This strong local connection makes us even more thrilled to welcome this talented and exciting company Shakespeare in the 'Burg. Shakespeare in the Square will be back this year with an exclusive performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
