Pennsylvania Shakespeare announces 2018 season

Rosalind (Marnie Schulenburg) woos Orlando (Zack Robidas) while Celia (Stella Baker) witnesses their affection, in a 2017 Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival production of “As You Like It.” The festival has announced its 2018 season.

‘Extreme Shakespeare.’ The Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival in Center Valley announces its summer 2018 season. On the Main Stage, they have Ragtime (June 13-July 1); the stage version of Tom Stoppard’s Shakespeare in Love, most-produced play in this country in 2016 (July 11-Aug. 5); King Richard II (July 19-Aug. 5); and Shakespeare for Kids (July 25-Aug. 4). Note: The same actors will alternate Shakespeare in Love and King Richard II, sometimes on the same day! Cool. At the Schubert Theatre it’ll be Alice in Wonderland (June 1-Aug. 4), Twelfth Night (June 21-July 15), and All’s Well That Ends Well (July 25-Aug. 5), the last done in “Extreme Shakespeare Mode,” in which the cast, sans director or producer, works up the play all by themselves, in just a few days. The way Will did it!
