Thanks to all who joined us for The Merry Wives of Windsor, Bard to Go: Bardic Inspiration, and the 2023 Greenshow.
The Grand Valley Shakespeare Festival is changing from an annual festival to a biennial (every other year).
We will return in Fall 2024 with a Mainstage production (TBA) and Bard to Go as well as other festival events.
Educational Outreach Continues!
Educators, The Shakespeare Festival changing to a biennial schedule will allow the Grand Valley Theatre Program to produce a larger variety of classic works to bring to life for your high school and middle school students as our Festival and theatre program continue to enrich your curricular needs.
- We will launch the premier of our biennial offering of classics in the Fall of 2023 with a new adaptation of George Orwell’s Animal Farm, a touring show specifically created for your students by Grand Valley faculty, staff, and undergrads.
- The Fall 2023 Animal Farm tour will operate much like our previous Bard to Go shows: a small cast of GVSU student actors will come to your secondary school to perform a 50-minute show on a simple set in your auditorium, cafeteria, or gymnasium.
- The production places the action in a modern setting that highlights the relevance of the novel's themes with today's adolescents.
- Teacher study guides for our 2023 Animal Farm production will also be available for pre and post-show discussions and classroom activities for participating schools.
