    • An Anecdotal History–and Mythology–of the Stars and Stripes
      June 14 is Flag Day, marking the day in 1777 that the Second Continental Congress adopted the stars and stripes as America’s national banner. But it takes a bit more than the dawn’s early light to make out the origins of the flag. Still, it’s worth a try. Let’s start with the stripes. In 1769 some...Read More »

Virginia Shakespeare Festival 2012 in Williamsburg VA

From W&M

Virginia Shakespeare FestivalIn 1753, the Hallam troupe, having broken with London’s New Wells Theatre, arrived in Williamsburg to present The Merchant of Venice, the first professional production of Shakespeare in the New World.

This year  the Virginia Shakespeare Festival in Williamsburg celebrates its 34th annual season. You are invited  to join in this venerable tradition of the Bard in the ‘Burg, this year in the intimate 130 seat Studio Theatre while the main stage is undergoing needed renovations.

2012 Season Kick Off – Friday, April 20th at 7:30pm in Andrews Hall Auditorium
An Evening with the Three Jolly Coachmen – a benefit concert for the Virginia Shakespeare Festival
Admission by donation at the door ($10 suggested, more gratefully accepted).  See the link "Support The Bard" to the left for more details on this special fundraising event.

THE TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA                  

by William Shakespeare

June 13– July 8, 2012

Love abounds here in both Verona and Milan, where best friends Proteus and Valentine are inseparable, that is until they both fall head over heels for the same girl.  One of Shakespeare’s earliest and funniest works features a girl dressed as a guy, two wiley servants to attend the two love-struck boys and…. a dog (yes, a real dog) as the main characters.  Steven Breese (Romeo & Juliet, Much Ado About Nothing) stages this production that’s great for kids and parents alike. It’s a fast moving farce (one of Shakespeare’s shortest) and  contagious canine comedy.

THE MERCHANT OF VENICE

July 12 – July 29, 2012                                                         

We return to our roots as VSF presents the show that originated Shakespeare in the New World.  "The quality of mercy is not strained" in this production but it is a match for the ages as our indomitable heroine (Portia) is set against the craftiest of unsociable opponents (Shylock).  A comedy or a tragedy?  A romance or a battle of wits?  This show is a bit of everything with surprising humor and pulse-pounding suspense.  John Ammerman, loved by VSF audiences for his work as Macbeth, Jacques, and Sir Thomas More, returns to play the inscrutable Shylock in Artistic Director Christopher Owens’ staging.

Performances are Wednesday through Saturday evenings at 8pm, Sunday afternoons at 2pm.  Special Performance of The Two Gentlemen of Verona on Tuesday, July 3 – see performance schedule for details.
