Shakespeare in the Valley Livestream final show tonight, 7PM!
(you don't need a FB account to view)
Review of Friday's show from Tim Gallagher: " ... fantastic, fresh, and fascinating. It was innovative and interesting. It was new. It was an example of creativity working with the current normal to do the best possible, while revealing a few new tricks never before possible. Thoroughly fun and enjoyable."💓

This experimental youth theater production will stream live on Facebook, starring the Shakespeare and Music for Shakespeare workshop participants: Susan Gielskie, Leo Besen, Isla Dapkins, Sacha Franjola, Evelyn Potrzeba, Theo Sia, Cassius Quinn-Crandall, Mae Gallagher, Maica Quinn-Crandall, Benjamin Landfield, and Lucia Marsiglio; directed by Lillian Meredith, and co-instructed by Vanessa Van Burek and Stephen Bennett.
These performances are the culmination of The WKC’s Young People’s Theater Arts Workshops (YPTAW)— a long-standing youth theater program that cycles through Shakespeare’s repertoire, and also typically includes set building, costume design, and acting classes for children ages 6-19. For more three decades, these recurring workshops have played an important role throughout the formative years of many of its participants, developing self-confidence and lasting friendships among the students. Several YPTAW alumni are currently pursuing active theater or film careers, and many have children who are now West Kortright Centre theater workshop participants. This year’s program was reconfigured as an online experience for the Shakespeare and Music for Shakespeare participants.
Viewers are encouraged to recreate the Shakespeare in the Valley experience by enjoying their own picnic beforehand and creating a viewing space that includes a blanket or lawn chair.
The 2020 YPTAW program and virtual Shakespeare in the Valley performances are co-sponsored by NYCM Insurance, OneGroup/Gordon B. Roberts Agency, and the Delhi Telephone Company.DOWNLOADABLE PLAYBILL [caption id="attachment_1915" align="aligncenter" width="685"] Artwork by Ysa Shaw[/caption]
