Island Shakespeare Festival 2016

Thank you to all who made the 2016 season at Island Shakespeare Festival a success! The summer is over, and we had an amazing three months working and playing together.

The audiences seemed to have a great time, too: 


"I was treated to one of the best acted & well produced plays I have ever been privileged to watch. I was simply transported..."
 
"We just returned from a spectacular evening of Jane Eyre. I cannot even put into words how incredible it was. The cast was world class, better than most I have seen on Broadway. I could not have imagined that a such magnificent performance could be experienced on our little island."
 
"Magnificent performances in As You Like It on August 5. Lovely setting, too. Would definitely see more plays if I'd been on the island for longer."
 
"Amazing job. I took my bros to see 'Julius Caesar' tonight and we all enjoyed it so much. Great performance."
