Kentucky Shakespeare 60th Season Update
The safety and well-being of our artists, technicians, staff, and you, our audience, are of utmost importance to us at Kentucky Shakespeare. We continue to closely monitor CDC, state, and city guidance for assembling and have submitted re-opening plans to the city and state.
We are further delaying the start of our 60th anniversary season of the free Kentucky Shakespeare Festival in Central Park until July 28, extending the main stage season through August 30. Unfortunately our additional productions of the Globe Players Professional Training Program for high school students, Cincinnati Shakespeare Company, and the Louisville Ballet will now move to the 2021 season.
We continue to work safely and remotely, building the many exciting plans for the upcoming season. Our summer artists, technicians, and staff are all cast and contracted – and we are all looking forward to serving you.
We remain hopeful that we can all soon safely be together again in Central Park, and not unlike Shakespeare waiting out the plague during his lifetime, we wait out this pandemic promising you inspiring art on the other side.
Shakespeare belongs to everyone, and we will again bring it to you as soon as we can. Stay safe and we will get through this, together.
