Richmond Shakespeare Festival announces its 2018 Season

Richmond Shakespeare Festival is proud to announce its 2018 Summer Festival Season opening weekends, June 16th – June 30th. This season’s productions include MacBeth and The Winter’s Tale brought to you by a brilliant cast and crew of AEA and non-AEA professionals, college-age interns, and volunteers sourced from as far as New York City and as near as Richmond itself.

Leading this company and directing MacBeth is Producing Artistic Director, Patrick Flick, also Executive Director of the international Shakespeare Theatre Association. On visiting Richmond, he says “Anytime is a good time to come to Richmond, but the summer is really the best. Come see some of the only Shakespeare being produced right here in beautiful Wayne County. We’re an hour and change from Cincinnati and Indianapolis, and even closer to Dayton and other surrounding communities.”

The Festival performs in the Starr-Gennett Pavilion in the beautiful Whitewater Gorge Park at 201 S. First Street in Richmond Indiana (Directions). And check out scenes from some of our past festivals below.

Richmond Shakespeare Festival participates
in 2017 Wayne County Foundation Challenge Match

The Richmond Shakespeare Festival has been selected by the Wayne County Foundation to participate in the 2017 Challenge Match fundraising program. Qualifying donations (up to $1000 per donor) received during the match period (November 6-13, 2017) will be matched dollar-for-dollar. The Wayne County Foundation will match up to $5000 after the first $2500 has been raised. The RSF Board is sweetening the pot by matching the first $2500 (before the WCF match), and an additional $2500 (after the WCF match). In other words, the first $10,000 raised will be matched 1-to-1. We need your help to realize our $20,000 goal.

You can donate online by clicking the Donate button above, or by visiting the Wayne County Foundation donation website. Or, send a check to: Richmond Shakespeare Festival, 822 E Main Street, Suite A, Richmond, IN 47374.

Donations are cheerfully accepted at any time, but to qualify for the Challenge Match, be sure to make (or mail) your donation between November 6 and November 13, 2017. Thank you for your support!
