Did you know Richmond has a Shakespeare festival?

When I was in college in Southern Utah, my university hosted the Shakespeare festival each summer. It was a wonderful opportunity to experience so many enriching plays. Each night they even performed a Green Show before the main performance in a Globe Theatre replica.

Playing at Agecroft Hall Thursday-Sunday June 1-25 is Love’s Labour’s Lost and July 6-30 is Macbeth.

Check out their website for more info and to purchase tickets.

There’s so many things to choose from. Richmond Family Magazine online is a great resource to check out as well.

I wanted to highlight a few and hope you can find time to enjoy them. Leave a comment below if you do check them out and let me know how it was!
