  • St. Lawrence Shakespeare Festival Cancels the season

    TO OUR "SHAKESPEARE" FAMILY, FRIENDS, SUPPORTERS AND OUR COMMUNITY AT LARGE: Following restrictions released by the Government of Canada, the Government of Ontario and the Town of Prescott regarding the COVID-19 global pandemic, we at The St. Lawrence Shakespeare Festival are heartbroken to announce the postponement of our 2020 season. A Midsummer Night's Dream and The Fantasticks were originally set to open on July 10th, 2020 at the Kinsmen Amphitheatre in Prescott, Ontario, in collaboration with our partner the Town of Prescott and with support from the Ontario Arts Council.​ Richard Sheridan Willis, the Festival's Artistic Director, says: "We truly regret that these amazing stories and artistic visions will not be shared with our audiences this year – our 18th season. This was an upsetting decision to make but the only option available to us in the current circumstances. The health and safety of our artists, audience and community are paramount at this time. This, together with the considerable work needed to prepare for our celebrated rep season and the significant costs involved, presents too great a risk during a time of such upheaval and uncertainty. Our goal is to ensure that we continue to be one of Ontario's top outdoor summer theatre companies and to be here to serve our community in the future."​ The Festival's plan is to program these exciting productions as part of their 2021 season. The company still hopes to stage the popular community musical of Mary Poppins in the Fall of 2020 depending on circumstances prevailing at that time.​
