To the agreement of our Board of Directors and Artistic Director Paul Rowe, Shakespeare by the Sea will be re-imagining its 2018 season, and producing one main stage show, as opposed to two. “As You Like It”, will operate as a “travelling show”, performing at various outdoor locations in the city. The festival will continue the traditions of producing the family friendly show “Shake it Up” at the St. John’s Farmers Market, as well as our highly lauded “Tunes and Tales with Kelly Russell” at the Crow’s Nest Officers Club.
We wish to thank ArtsNL for their cooperation in allowing us to make changes to the season at this late stage. We also wish to thank Jenn Deon for agreeing to direct The Winter’s Tale, and hope very much that her vision for the production is something we can explore together at a later date.
Shakespeare by the Sea Festival operates on a budget that is sustainable only in the short run; in order to ensure the longevity of this festival, we have decided to focus our efforts this year to ensure the strongest season possible, with plans to return to the festival you know and love in 2019. If you wish to support the festival, please consider making a donation or become a monthly donor.
Auditions will take place on April 28th. There will still be a large number of roles to cast and a company to fill, so please email info@shakespearebytheseafestival.com to book an audition time.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.We look forward to seeing you all this summer!
