The Grand Valley Shakespeare Festival is committed to offering Shakespeare in performance to regional schools. This year, the festival again offers two different production options. Our Mainstage production, A Midsummer Night's Dream will be performed for three special midweek matinees at a reduced group rate that includes lunch and the opportunity to interact with cast and crew members. Additionally, our touring production Bard to Go is available to travel to area schools to perform the exciting new 50 minute production titled Bard To Go: Tossing on the Ocean which contains scenes from several Shakespeare plays. 

A Midsummer Night's Dream matinees will be Monday, September 30, Tuesday, October 1, and  Thursday, October 3, at 10 a.m. All performances are currently full. For registration questions, contact Jack Lane at  . 

Bard to Go will be touring on Fridays October 18, 25, November 1, and 8. UPDATE Bard to Go is mostly full but still accepting registration requests for its tour. Please continue to use the online registration to request dates. Once full, other schools will be placed on a waiting list.
