That’s right! The 2021-22 Season is our fifteenth year, and we are so excited to share some exciting new endeavors this fall/winter while we continue to adapt to the evolving restrictions of the pandemic.
We’ve been keeping busy during this long stretch of uncertainty and social distancing! There’s no doubt that the last 18 months (and counting…) have been full of triumph and disappointment. In February 2020, we launched a new high school festival, ShakesPeers, which went virtual in March 2021. Alas, we had to cancel our beloved Birthday Party and our summer production of Much Ado About Nothing for two consecutive years due to the Covid-19 crisis. However, we are so grateful to our audiences for tuning in for three live-stream “ShakesCheer” performances and helping us to raise funds for the Lancaster Cares Covid-19 Response Fund, Crispus Attucks Community Center, and Milagro House. And we’ve been amazed by the talents and tenacity of our Camp Will students. They adapted to remote theatre training beautifully in 2020 then jumped back into a condensed, in-person camp session in 2021 at the Stone Independent School.
Please check out our new YouTube channel and follow us on social media for news in fall/winter 2021. We will be back!
“We are deeply appreciative of the effort you put into ShakesCheer and the thoughtfulness and compassion you have demonstrated at such a precarious time in history.”– Milagro House
We were thrilled to share proceeds from ShakesCheer: Twelfth Night with Milagro House in Lancaster, PA. The full recording from our YouTube performance on January 10th, 2021 is up on our channel!
