2017 Season

From our sixth season of ShakesBEERience to two, full productions to the celebration of Shakespeare's birth(and death)day in April, there's a Shakespeare event for everyone!

Full Production

The Winter's Tale. Coming this fall

A nation divided; two worlds within one play, two countries within one country

Full Production

Hamlet. Coming this fall

Stages Shakespeare Company and Ohio Shakespeare Festival bring you a HAMLET that  explores what happens when we cannot or will not listen to each other. Featuring a deaf actor in the title role.

ShakesBEERience Encore: CYMBELINE. Coming this spring.

Our wildly-popular ShakesBEERience play reading program headed on-location to Throwback Brewery where eight of Shakespeare's history plays were read between dawn and dusk in chronological order. Professional actors- script in one hand, beer in the other- took you on the journey starting with Richard II, and wrapped up the event as night fell with Richard III. 

Shakespeare Day: April 23, 2017

We started at The Press Room and moved to five different venues within walking distance of each other in downtown Portsmouth, all in synch with a Sonnet-A-Thon.
