We had a tremendous time presenting both Romeo & Juliet and Two Noble Kinsmen this past season, and we hope you enjoyed seeing these plays as much as we enjoyed performing them. Our original touring show, Shakespeare in Wonderland, was quite a romp - we can't wait to see what Carolyn Travis squirrels away for next year!
Mark your calendars now for Sonnet-Grams! The best Valentine you'll ever give! We'll post more information both here and on our Facebook page later this fall and early winter.
Thank you again for your support of Shakespeare Northwest and our annual Skagit River Shakespeare Festival. See you next year!
“Outdoors and under the stars, the way it was meant to be.”
Shakespeare Northwest, the premier Shakespeare company in the Skagit Valley since 2000, annually brings a variety of Shakespeare’s works to life with a professional level cast. We perform under the stars at our outdoor venue, The Rexville-Blackrock Amphitheatre. In addition, The Summer Touring Show travels to a variety of outdoor venues.
Our capstone event is “Ironman” where we bring the season’s talent together for a full day of Shakespeare – with two full productions plus additional entertainment.
The caliber of acting within Shakespeare Northwest draws audience members from British Columbia to Oregon and from the San Juan Islands to Eastern Washington. The acting talent, drawn primarily from the Skagit Valley, also comes from Bellingham, Seattle and many points in-between. The majority of our actors are seasoned veterans, but each season we gather in new players and in the past few years have included several talented youth in our shows.
