Richmond Shakespeare Festival

Two months of bardy, bawdy fun at historic Agecroft Hall (a manor house that stood in England during Shakespeare's time) on the James River. Festival performances are held outdoors each July and August.

Population(s) Served

Our indoor season brings performances of plays by Shakespeare and other language-rich writers to the Gottwald Playhouse at Richmond's newest performing arts complex, CenterStage. The season traditionally includes fall, winter and spring productions, as well as a December staging of our long-beloved A Christmas Carol for Two Actors. Richmond Shakespeare offers most of its mainstage productions as full-length matinee performances for reserved school groups. These performances are also available in conjunction with in-school workshops. (More information under the "Educational Outreach" program description.)

Population(s) Served

Five actors, flexible staging, and minimal accoutrements bring Shakespeare's plays to life for thousands of patrons in Virginia and beyond, particularly in communities whose residents would not otherwise have access to professional theater performances.

Population(s) Served

Our workshops, residencies, camps and afterschool programs demonstrate that Shakespeare's works are understandable, exciting, and applicable to modern life. We bring innovative, interactive Shakespeare-based workshops to area students in their own schools.

Population(s) Served

Second Tuesdays Staged Readings: This monthly series of professionally directed and acted staged readings allows audiences to enjoy plays not often seen in full production, for an affordable ticket price. Professional Development Training Services: The company is dedicated to enriching Central Virginia's entire theater community by providing affordable, topical training in the theater arts that is both accessible to beginning actors and useful to seasoned professionals. These services include multi-week courses, master classes and personal coaching.
