In loving memory

It is with great sadness we share the passing of long-time company member, Janet Edmonds.
Janet Edmonds was a long-time and valued member of the Shakespeare by the Sea Festival who was the embodiment of its values of camaraderie, mentorship and "all hands to the pump" motto.
Janet was universally loved for her generosity of spirit and universally admired for her talent and deep commitment to her art. It would take Shakespeare himself to come close to describing her greatness.
Janet had tremendous and lasting impact on all who were privileged to know and work with her. She will be missed deeply and by many.
