2017 Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival June 8 – Sept 4: Rehearsals begin
If you are a theater fan with a particular taste for shakespearian plays think about visiting Garrison, NY. There at Boscobel mansion, a historical landmark restored from the Federal-era house and the Beaux-Arts gardens and grounds 60 miles north from New York City, the Hudson Valley Festival theater company will perform starting from June 8, 2017. The rehearsals have just began! Take a look at what is going on behind the scene here:
We’ve been hard at work putting a brand new system in place that will make your experience of buying HVSF tickets faster and easier. On Wednesday, March 15, you’ll get the chance to try it out when tickets go on sale to the public!
Long before the Theater Tent is erected on the edge of the Hudson, our acting company gathers in New York City to begin the rehearsal process — memorizing lines, developing their characters, reviewing sets and costumes with designers, meeting staff and supporters, and more. Go behind the scenes with our 2017 company! Photos by Ashley Garrett.
This year Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival program includes Twelfth Night and Love’s Labor’s Lost by W. Shakespeare, Pride and Prejudice adapted from Jane Austen, The Book of Will by Lauren Gunderson and The General from America by Richard Nelson.
Plan to arrive early to enjoy the gardens and the scenery of Hudson river and its Highlands.
